The gallery, which Bradbury said is slated to open August 25, features several exterior murals, and is topped by Sergio Furnari’s “Lunchtime on a Skyscraper,” a sculpture that recreates a famous 1932 photograph of steelworkers taking a lunch break on a steel beam 850 feet above the ground at Manhattan’s Rockefeller Center.
