Burchfield artistry displayed in New York City

A work entitled “Noontide in Late May,” painted in 1917 by famed Salem artist Charles Burchfield, is shown Monday on the NASDAQ sign in New York City’s Time Square. As detailed in a feature story this past Sunday on page 1A of the Salem News (salemnews.net), the work is part of “Art Everywhere US,” a national celebration of great American artwork. The campaign launched nationwide on Monday. Burchfield’s “Noontide” is one of 58 artworks in this national art show – displaying artworks in public places such as malls, airports, movie theaters and on billboards and buses.
