Noah Fischer: Financial Relief Sculptures

November 12 – Noah Fischer—“Financial Relief Sculptures.” The artist’s studio window looks out on lower Manhattan – the capital of global finance. Responding to this view, and to the still-unfolding 2008 market crash, Fischer has taken derivatives, personal indebtedness, and the strangeness of money as a dark muse: amassing a hoard of relief sculptures, some of which resemble oversized coins. While today’s digital currency is pure abstraction and borderless speculation, coins are living fossils from ancient economies, and perhaps they can provide some perspective on ours. The sculptures are rendered roughly and poetically from wood, wax, paint, and metal and displayed in pairs on graphic backdrops. They are monuments to generations of financial injustice, and anxiety. The collection is presented for the first time in the Treasure Room Gallery.

The Interchurch Center, home to 76 different non-profit organizations is one of NYC’s best kept secrets. Originally unveiled in 1958 by President Dwight Eisenhower, the center’s unique mission was of a place where Christians, Jews, and Muslims would collaborate as neighbors. This mission remains in Interchurch Center’s guiding principles.

Interchurch Center, A Model of Efficiency

The Interchurch Center has earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s prestigious ENERGY STAR, the national symbol for protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency. This signifies that the building performs in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency.

“The Interchurch Center is pleased to accept EPA’s ENERGY STAR in recognition of our energy efficiency efforts,” said Paula Mayo, President and Executive Director. “Through this achievement, we have demonstrated our commitment to environmental stewardship while also lowering our energy costs.”

Commercial buildings that earn the ENERGY STAR use an average of 35 percent less energy than typical buildings and also release 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The Interchurch Center improved its energy performance by managing energy strategically across the entire organization and by making cost-effective improvements to its building. The Interchurch Center has prevented greenhouse gas emissions equal to the electricity use from 309 homes, or removing 486 cars from the road, or planting 65,000 trees.

EPA’s ENERGY STAR energy performance scale helps organizations assess how efficiently their buildings use energy relative to similar buildings nationwide. A building that scores a 75 or higher on EPA’s 1-100 scale is eligible for the ENERGY STAR. Commercial buildings that can earn the ENERGY STAR include offices, bank branches, financial centers, retail stores, courthouses, hospitals, hotels, K-12 schools, medical offices, supermarkets, dormitories, houses of worship, and warehouses.
