One of the most eye-catching artworks at this year’s Burning Man festival was a 55-feet tall sculpture of a woman in a beautifully elegant pose. Truth is Beauty is the second of three sculptures in a series called The Bliss Project by artist Marco Cochrane.

For Richard Mieier’s new model museum he chose a quiet locale: a converted warehouse building in the post-industrial suburb of Jersey City.
The museum is tucked into the larger Mana Contemporary complex, which houses art studios, collectives, and experimental galleries. Meier’s project is a striking addition to the building’s avant-garde agenda that confirms Jersey City’s emergence as a veritable satellite for New York City’s creative community. (A native of New Jersey himself, Meier is also making headlines for his development of teachers’ housing in nearby Newark.)
