View of the Starlight installation at the Museum of the City of New York

Back to Exhibitions

The dazzling focal point of the Museum’s main entry space, this brilliant light installation is suspended above the Rotunda.

Conceived by Cooper Joseph Studio, it accentuates the Rotunda’s sweeping circular staircase. The 5,283 points of light boldly complement the Museum’s 1932 neo-Georgian home, reflecting its mission to connect the city’s past and present. Using state of the art technology, the piece needs minimal energy and generates virtually no heat. It is among the Museum’s most photographed features.
