The Art of Richard MacDonald presents the first solo exhibition of a profound new direction in Richard MacDonald’s work. Considered one of America’s greatest figurative sculptors, Richard MacDonald (1946- ) focused intently on the minerals and pigments of his patinas in 2014 and 2015. The results are seen in Richard MacDonald: red, which displays the artist’s creative immersion into the hue, the emotion and the narrative of color.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the ‘red’ collection by Richard MacDonald will benefit (RED), the global charity founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver to get businesses and people involved in the fight against AIDS. Learn more at red.org.

He has played a major role in bringing glass into the realm of contemporary art.
While Drake’s dance moves from the video “Hotline Bling” have gotten the majority of the press, it’s the background that piqued other’s interest. The minimalist frames bathed in intense light are reminiscent of an artist quite familiar to The Shops at Crystals – James Turrell. The artist, famed for his use of light and space to alter the mind, has two installations at Crystals, “Shards of Light” on the third floor and “Akhob” situation inside Louis Vuitton.
While it was rumored that Turrell actually worked on the video with the rapper, he issued a statement stating that while he was flattered “… neither I nor any of my woes was involved in any way in the making of the Hotline Bling video.” Seems Turrell might know a thing or two about Drake as well.
To inquire about either Turrell installation at The Shops at Crystals please call our concierge at 702.730.3150 or email email@example.com
