Kara Walker: ‘A Subtlety’

Renowned artist Kara Walker is at it again- this time constructing a monumental confection within the walls of the old Domino Sugar Factory in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Nicknamed ‘The Marvelous Sugar Baby,’ this towering sugar sphinx pays homage to the “overworked artisans who have refined our sweet tastes from the cane fields to the kitchens of the New World” (Walker’s words).  Click HERE to view a short video about the piece, on view until July 6th.
