8 'Till Late

The latest installation at The Standard Hotel

Living in New York City one will find a bodega on just about every street corner. It's a place that truly becomes a second home even down to the owners remembering your name and daily orders. Recently one new bodega has opened with the interior that will make you give a second look. The new bodega that has spurted opened in the city is a new installation by Lucy Sparrow.




This new bodega is located in Lower Manhattan at the Standard Hotel. Some might remember the cornershop installation that Lucy created in London back in 2014. Similar to that installation, Lucy Sparrow has sewed thousands of felt sculptures which replica the look of many day to day items. 


Each of the handmade items are for sale and should be an enjoyable collectors item. If you're from NYC or out of town and happened to stumble across this bodega, you'll be sure to love what Lucy Sparrow has been and wonder what she'll do next. 


Update: This exhibition has now ended.
