Marla Beth Enowitz strikes again. The Abstract Expressionist artist from Rye Brook, the force behind Marla Beth Designs, has created a colorful, large-scale mural, “Gumballs,” which uses the 600-square-foot windows of the former Justice store as a canvas.
“The window acts as a glass bowl, holding the gumballs and essentially creating a larger-than-life gumball machine,” Enowitz says. “Many gumballs are settled, but others pop up. Seeing all these colors alongside each other felt, for me, like a metaphor for what happens when we work together. It’s fun, hopeful and meant to inspire good vibes. It also makes a perfect selfie backdrop.”
Indeed, mall visitors are encouraged to snap a selfie in front of “Gumballs” (located on Retail Level 3), follow @marlabeth_designs on Instagram and tag their photo with #MBDGumballs for a chance to win a custom Marla Beth Designs splattered hat, neon pink mug and an original 4-inch by 4-inch mini canvas. The giveaway will run through Dec. 31.
