On View

Permanent installation. James Carpenter, MacArthur Fellow and architectural artist, created Reflection Passage to provide visitors with a thoughtful and inspiring experience as they move through the Museum.

Reflection Passage relies upon changes in the natural world to complete the artistic process. Its glass surface captures New York Harbor’s ephemeral qualities of light and water and re-presents them inside a main passageway of the Museum, creating an ever-changing reflection in real time.
