The Collection

The Collection: Where Art Meets Fashion is a selection of thoughtfully-curated, permanent and temporary art activations throughout the center. The Collection represents local artists and groups, student art, and international creators – and activates the shopping center common area year-round with commissioned pieces and rotating exhibits.

"Synergy" by Matthew J. Leavell

Located on The Plaza

Synergy is a dynamic epoxy coated steel sculpture by Pennsylvania Sculptor Matthew J. Leavell. The work was initially completed in 2017 as a maquette of a much larger proposed piece. The sculpture has been exhibited in several U.S. States. The distinct colors used in the piece represent the concept of individuality in the midst of diversity, while the manner in which each hue blends almost imperceptibly into a multicolored circular form represents a synergistic relationship between diverse elements in a healthy society.

The Tolerance Project

In a world increasingly split by our human differences, The Tolerance Project utilizes the unique power of design to remind us what we all have in common. The Tolerance Project is a travelling poster collection that celebrates and honors the starting point of all meaningful discourse: Tolerance. This Exhibit has brought a message of social acceptance to more than 500,000 people through 180 shows in 47 countries worldwide. Founded by artist-activist Mirko Ilić, this bold initiative showcases the work of over 200 designers—some established, some up-and-coming, all wildly talented. The project is dedicated to reaching people who don’t ordinarily visit galleries or museums. Located on the Upper Level near Macy's.
