F o r t h e L o v e o f Dogs
An interactive performance by Marcy B. Freedman
(Tarrytown, NY) On Sunday, February 12, 2012 from 11am to 2pm, members of the public will be able to experience a one-on-one interaction with artist Marcy B. Freedman at Coffee Labs Roasters, 7 Main Street, Tarrytown, NY 10591. The performance, which is called “For the Love of Dogs,” is the latest in a series of works that Freedman has presented – for free – in various public spaces.
In this case, visitors to the coffee shop will be invited to converse with the artist about a dog that they have loved. Freedman will jot down information about the dog, and she will create a special “valentine” in honor of the animal. She will also provide each human participant with a special souvenir – perfect for any dog-lover!
Freedman explains the motivation for her series – and this project – as follows:
I am convinced that most of us are spending too much time in isolation from others, because we rely upon “virtual” forms of communication, such as email, texting, blogging, social networking, etc. I believe that humans need human contact, and therefore, I want to create situations that engage real people in real time and real space. In this particular performance piece, I will be exploring an additional phenomenon: the powerful and meaningful connection between humans and dogs.
