Announcing a new Meetup for ArtForward!

What: Saturday Afternoon "A Closer NY" Opening

When: January 24,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: The urban landscape consists of industrial elements and ephemeral nature. Steel, wood, concrete, plastic, and paper that weather the unseasonable climate patterns of hot and cold, wet and dry form a harmonious decomposition. As new buildings thrust upwards from the bedrock, the city?s skyline undergoes significant changes. More and more passersby become less sensitive to scaffolding and industrial equipment that commandeer sidewalks. This form of sensory adaptation debilitates aesthetic recognition. ?A Closer NY? encourages the audience to seek beauty in imperfections...


Participating artists include Sherry Mills with a series of photographs and FAB Featured Artist, Amir Bey with a sculpture titled, "Amilcar and the Mermaid" installed on scaffolding as part of Fourth Arts Block's, "ArtUp" public art program.
