–DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, Massachusetts

Rhode Island abstract artist Lynne Harlow has made a splash around the country and internationally, with work featured in the Metropolitan Museum of Art; The Museum of Modern Art; the RISD Museum; the New York Public Library and U.S. Embassies. Her work is in demand in galleries throughout the U.S., and has been reviewed widely, including Artforum, The New York Times and The Boston Globe. She is also the winner of a 2011 Robert and Margaret McColl Johnson Fellowship from the Rhode Island Foundation. For the quality and sensitivity of her work she was chosen for the commanding, top floor location at 180 Westminster St., for the first project generated by the new Providence Biennial for Contemporary Art. Winter King Hawthorn is a vibrant, site-specific installation of color and light. It responds to the kind of architectural characteristics and quirks that define our city, and is a remarkable contribution by The Providence Biennial of Contemporary Art.
