Robert Hickman will be showing recent cut glass and mirror sculpture, inspired by Islamic tile and Roman pavement mosaic, at Saint Peter's Church in midtown. Hickman is perhaps best know for his transparent glass mosaic skylight for the 72nd Street Subway station at Broadway. His other permanent public commissions are at Bryant Avenue pedestrian bridge, Hunts Point, Bronx; Capital Community College, Hartford, CT; and at Roosevelt Island Station, New York. He has exhibited in solo and group shows at New York venues PS1, SculptureCenter, Exit Art, White Columns, and Socrates Sculpture Park, among many others. His recent one person show at Long Island University received a review from Jan Castro in Sculpture Magazine. Hickman’s work has been recognized by many national and international awards, among them New York City MASterwork Award for Best New Public Art from The Municipal Society of New York. An Ohio native, Hickman is an assistant adjunct professor at Hunter college. He lives and works in Brooklyn.

Regular exhibitions of contemporary art enhancing the human spirit are sponsored by the Midtown Arts Common in the galleries at Saint Peter’s Church. This program, and permanent installations such as the Erol Beker Chapel of the Good Shepherd, sculpted by Louise Nevelson, and the Exterior Cross by Arnaldo Pomodoro, are keystones of the church’s ministry of creatively shaping life in the city.
