Manhattan Mettle. In April 2011 Ann Carrington was commissioned to make an art work for the huge lobby wall of the W Hotel in Hoboken, inspiration came from the metallic shapes and landscape of the old docklands and waterfront industries of Hoboken – chains, anchors, hooks, cranes made from steel metal and nickel. The mural is actually a giant magnet holding in place tens of thousands of metallic objects – including dollars and dimes, New York subway tokens, spanners, saws, ship building nails and chains.
