A group of 54 artists and other art worlders has signed a letter asking Mayor de Blasio and Meenakshi Srinivasan, chair of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission, to deny the Frick Collection’s proposed plan for expansion.

“Those of us in the art world who cherish the unique and tranquil ambiance offered by the Frick are urging the Frick to withdraw its proposed plan and consider alternative methods of expansion that would preserve the character essential to its appeal,” says the missive, which is signed by gallerists Paul Kasmin and Irving Blum, filmmaker Sophia Coppola, and artists Jeff Koons, Chuck Close, John Currin, Brice Marden, Frank Stella, Cindy Sherman, Deborah Kass, Cecily Brown, Lisa Yuskavage, Rudolf Stingel, and Sarah Sze, among others.

Contemporary art is about to take over luxury retail enclaves on the eastern seaboard.

On September 18, Deborah Kass will unveil 39 banners and one billboard — commissioned especially for high-end shopping strip The Street in Chestnut Hill, MA — as part of a series of outdoor exhibitions and public art installation project presented by WS Development and Art Production Fund.

The banners will depict many of Brooklyn-based Kass’s iconic works, such as "C’mon Get Happy," "Forget Your Troubles," "Sweet Thing," "We Will Be Young Forever" and "Let The Sunshine In" — letting her signature punchy, abstract expressionist style flank the center’s public areas.
