New York Public Library Mid-Manhattan Branch

Established in 1970, the Mid-Manhattan Branch contains The New York Public Library’s largest circulating collections in the heart of Midtown. Materials are geared toward students and adults, with a broad selection of popular books, older and classic fiction, DVDs, CDs, magazines and newspapers, and online databases.

On view day and night The Art Collection presents the site-specific sculpture exhibition What Does Blue Sound Like? by artist Ellen Hackl Fagan. This installation will enable visitors to upload the Reverse Color Organ onto their phones and collectively pair a given palette of sounds to the colors blue and red. The artist will be looking for trends in visitors' submissions based on time of day or night, their language of origin, age, occupation, and geographic location.
