Tracing Back the Radiance
If you cut through the Kaufman Arcade on your trip through the Garment District, take a look at the wall. A series of colorful artworks by Alix Ankele are a nice distraction from the bustling business of the city. Inspired by Tibetan and Zen meditation, Ankele's oil paintings remind us to find the joy and radiance in life.
