Mythical creatures come alive in the Garment District
Garment District Space for Public Art presents “The Garden of the Unseen” exhibition by artist Cydney Bittner.

NEW YORK, NY.- The Garment District Alliance announced the latest in its ongoing series of public art exhibits, showcasing 14 watercolor cutouts of fairies and fantastical creatures titled The Garden of the Unseen, created by artist Cydney Bittner.

Located in a street-level window on 215 West 38th Street, the free exhibit is accessible to the public through July 11. The Garden of the Unseen is part of the Garment District Space for Public Art program, which showcases artists in unusual locations throughout the year and in over 16 years has produced more than 200 installations, exhibits and performances.

“Following this tumultuous year, we know New Yorkers will enjoy tapping into their inner child with Cydney Bittner’s fun, whimsical creations,” said Barbara A. Blair, president of the Garment District Alliance. “The Garden of the Unseen certainly captures the creative and imaginative essence of our neighborhood, and we encourage all to visit before these magical creatures disappear!”

Inspired by the enchantment of nature and faces that seem to emerge from it, The Garden of the Unseen is a celebration of the child within everyone who still wants to believe magic exists. The series of cutouts explode with mirth and whimsy, and are painted in gouache on watercolor paper and mounted on foam core.

Born and raised in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Cydney Bittner constantly found joy and comfort in fantasy media. Inspired by the fantasy artists and illustrators whose work she loved growing up, she is motivated to create work that brings that same excitement to children as well as adults. In her experience teaching art, she has seen firsthand the importance of imagination, and strives to create works that nurture that critical part of the human psyche. Bittner received her Bachelor of Arts from Marymount Manhattan College.

The Garment District is home to diverse business sectors from technology to hospitality and includes thousands of people working in the creative economy, including fine and performing artists, designers, architects, photographers and more than a hundred theaters, galleries, performance spaces and studios.
