Glass mosaic on mezzanine walls above stairs

For his mosaics, Robert Kushner created bouquets of flowers - from every season - that reflect such influences as Dutch flower paintings and Japanese screens. Most neighborhoods have flower shops, but they are abundant on the Upper East Side, and have associations with many of the city's finest hospitals, parks, and museums located there. At 77th Street he gives the community a blazing bouquet to brighten the day (and night).
