Suspended in the Prow of the historic Flatiron Building in the heart of Manhattan is the art installation called "Hypergraphia: Gwyneth Leech, the Cup Drawings, Studio in the Prow". Since September 20, 2011 artist Gwyneth Leech has been sitting in the windows of the Flatiron Prow five days a week diligently drawing and painting on upcycled take-out paper coffee cups, resulting in nearly 800 paper cup artworks on show. By having the artist working in the exhibit space, viewers not only see the end result of Hypergraphia, the cups, but also the process by which they came to be.
You can also bring your own used paper coffee cup to the artist. Learn more
