Through November 11, 2012 - Tarrytown

For the first time, Lyndhurst is home to an outdoor art exhibition presented within the bare bones of an 18,600-square-foot greenhouse, an historic structure located on the Lyndhurst grounds. Artists were invited to explore the theme of the Scarecrow and look beyond the traditional straw-filled dummy to explore broader themes associated with this figure as human surrogate, decoy, and silent observer. Six artists living and working in NYC, Brooklyn, upstate New York, and New Jersey have been selected for exhibition in Scarecrow. They have created a variety of artworks that respond to the multi-sensory nature of the open-air site and to the unique character of the Greenhouse space. Works included in the exhibition utilize a range of materials from vines and natural plant life, burlap, metal, acrylic, nylon, and digital media. Some artists have responded to the theme by directly referencing the human figure, others have considered the metaphorical and symbolic implications of the scarecrow in works that are more abstract and intangible. The Scarecrow exhibition coincides with the annual "Scarecrow Invasion" at Lyndhurst, a popular Halloween event in which hundreds of scarecrows created largely by children from local school districts are displayed throughout the grounds of the mansion.
