AFTER HOURS 2: MURALS ON THE BOWERY is a public art installation that plays with the practices of graffiti art, traditional mural painting and graphic posters, to ignite the neighborhood surrounding The Bowery. After Hours 2 invites artists to reflect upon the history and present state of The Bowery to create a site specific mural or poster. This public art project is both a destination for a specific audience and an unexpected art intervention for the passerby.

ART PRODUCTION FUND is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to commissioning and producing ambitious public art projects, reaching new audiences and expanding awareness through contemporary art.

IDEAS CITY is a festival that explores the future of cities around the globe with the belief that arts and culture are a driving force behind the vitality of urban centers. IDEAS CITY was founded by the New Museum as a major collaborative initiative between dozens of arts, education, and community organizations working together to effect change. The festival is held every other year in New York with satellite conferences and workshops taking place in international cities during the alternate years. IDEAS CITY was launched in New York in 2011.

IDEAS CITY Topic 2012/2013: Untapped Capital

As the world’s resources continue to be endangered, depleted, and destroyed, we need to come up with new solutions and practices and develop new approaches. Rather than focusing on our deficits, this year’s IDEAS CITY encourages an examination of surplus capital that may be under-recognized or underutilized. There are many ways of thinking about what untapped capital could be: people, ideas, networks, raw materials, varied resources, and modes of communication. The topic of Untapped Capital provides a meeting place for developing alternative thinking, new methodologies, new solutions, and new goals.

After Hours 2 is made possible with the generous support of Sotheby’s.

Emerging Artists Retail Network NYC Co-Op Gallery w/No Fees or Dues

The newly formed, EARN/Emerging Artists Retail Network Co-Op Gallery in Manhattan accepts emerging artists working in NYC, and they have no fees or dues. They’re an open group of hard-working professional artists from all backgrounds and disciplines.

EARN currently has 20 active artist members in the collective. The founder Thomas Smith has worked for years in Soho and Chelsea for art galleries, from art handler to sales and management.  The concept for EARN came to him when he noticed how much it costs artists to show their work in a Manhattan Gallery.  The costs are thousands of dollars and there’s no guarantee of selling anything, which leaves the artist with empty pockets and disenchanted with the whole process. In order to open their own retail gallery space, EARN has launched an IndieGoGo campaign to collect contributions that will cover the first couple months of expenses.

It will be interesting to see how they do with their IndieGoGo campaign. Help out if you can.

View the work of one of the cop-op members, Rob Servo here.
