After training as a photographer at Yale, Diana MacKown worked alongside Louise Nevelson in New York City. These photographs offer a unique view into Nevelson’s studio, trips abroad and finished work, like Nevelson Chapel when it was first completed. Whether candid or formal, Diana’s lens is clever, playful and sharp.

Presented by Midtown Arts Common and Nevelson Legacy Council.


Diana MacKown was Louise Nevelson’s assistant for many years. Her photographs are included in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the National Portrait Gallery, London.

In her exhibition, Chellis Baird paves the entryway of Nevelson Chapel with her sculptural paintings. Baird’s work lies at the intersection of painting, sculpture, and textiles. She believes that through texture, evidence of the human hand, and emotional sensations through color, one can move the viewer's eye from screens to the physical world.

Presented by Midtown Arts Common and Nevelson Legacy Council.


Chellis Baird was raised in a mill town from South Carolina And moved to New York in 2005 to work as a fashion designer. Her passion for textiles continued to grow into a new body of work as a painter. She holds a BFA in textiles from Rhode Island School of Design, and studied at the Art Students League in New York City.
