Macy’s legendary windows become the site for artists and fashion designers to come together as part of the store’s special ongoing series, Art Under Glass. Eleven French and American artists have been invited to create installations especially for these highly visible showcase windows. This temporary sidewalk gallery will place multimedia displays by these potent young artists in relation to the new, exclusive fusion collection Rachel Rachel Roy. Free and open to the public 24/7, Macy’s windows will take on a whole new life as night falls.

Windows will feature the work of: AIDS-3D, Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir aka Shoplifter, Olivier Babin, Bruce High Quality Foundation, Marie Losier with Aya Kakeda and Francois Leloup Collet, Marie Maillard with Amelie Chabannes, Sarah Ortmeyer, Agathe Snow with Rita Ackerman, Visual System, Nick van Woert, and Michael L.
