On the balcony of the newly designed Whitney Museum of American Art, Virginia Overton has created a blossoming oasis. Large basins teem with water grass and lilies of brilliant pinks and purples. Two tall windmills tower above providing energy and power to help sustain the potted ecosystems. If the New York summer is too hot for you, Overton brings the outdoors inside with her sculptures and installations.
