Well that picturesque Shake Shack dining area’s latest installation opened at the beginning of the month, and the new public artist in residence is Seattle-born, New Haven-based installation artist and sculptor Jessica Stockholder (work at right). For a better understanding of her work, though, you’ll want to check out the outstanding exhibition of her recent pieces, Sailcloth Tears, that just opened at Mitchell-Innes & Nash in Chelsea (until June 13).
