LIC building welcomes mural by local artist


Elinore Schnurr creates permanent piece.


TF Cornerstone has commissioned a permanent art fixture for the lobby of one of their luxury residential buildings at 45-40 Center Blvd. in Long Island City.


The development company unveiled the piece entitled “August Rush Hour/ The Grand Central Terminal” at a reception held in the building’s lobby on Wednesday.


The painting captures the bustle of New York City’s transit station and was created by Elinore Schnurr, an artist whose studio is in LIC.


“We are excited that 45-40 will be the permanent home for this spectacular piece of art work,” said Sofia Estevez, executive vice president of TF Cornerstone. “‘August Rush Hour/ Grand Central Terminal’ truly captures the social and cultural diversity of New York City, which is also reflected in the residents of this building and that of the surrounding community.”


The artist and developers chose to capture the Grand Central Terminal because of its “iconic status,” proximity to Long Island City and place as a “vessel of opportunity for the millions of people who pass through the station every day.”


Schnurr is a contemporary figurative painter who has exhibited in major galleries and museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, [and is in the collections of museums such as] the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Museum of the City of New York, and the Museum of Fine Art in [St. Petersburg,] Florida.    [……] text added for clarification by artist


“Elinore is one of the most talented painters in Long Island City,” said Scott Walsh, director of market research. “The process of working on this piece over the past months has been a wonderful experience. We are very excited to continue our support of local artists within the community and pleased our residents will get to enjoy the painting every day.”


The building is one of six TF Cornerstone properties developed along the Long Island City waterfront in Hunters Point.
