The Cup Drawings are presented by Sprint and Cheryl McGinnis Projects in the Sprint Prow Artspace, where they can be viewed 24 hours a day. Gwyneth Leech, the artist, can be seen working in the space Tuesdays – Saturdays, from 11am – 2pm.

Also be sure to check out Leech’s blog, Gwyneth’s Full Brew, which is described in the project’s press release as an “integral extension of [this work featuring] cup drawings along with her vivid New York slice of life stories, her experiences from the window, and interactive comments and images from viewers.”
