Rachel Cohen-Lunning and Merrilee Lichtenstein
Cohen work together as MERCURA NYC. Together they designed metal body sculptures
and art at the Hotel Chelsea in the mid 1970's. Artwork included unique fantasy
jewelry, metal dresses, metal bustiers, gauntlet cuffs, headdresses, crowns,
metal hoods, and eyewear, cigarette holders, head ornaments, boxes and paintings
and table mounted sculptures. They continue to have their design studio at the
Chelsea and at a large work loft in the Flatiron Neighborhood.
