ArtUP:Growing Public Art in the LES, calls for funding to preserve cultural landmarks in East Village
As the end of the year approaches, FABnyc invites you to help us revitalize our community spaces by supporting our public art program, ArtUp.
Cultural landmarks are disappearing rapidly on the Lower East Side, and, in an effort to preserve the neighborhood’s character, FABnyc’s ArtUp program is transforming construction sites, scaffolding bridges, and vacant spaces into street-side galleries.
Invigorate and preserve the culture of the Lower East Side by making a contribution to ArtUp via our Kickstarter campaign. You can even receive special rewards from past and current ArtUp artists, and, to sweeten the deal, all donors will be invited to a backer party this January.
ArtUp will only be funded if at least $3,000 is pledged by Thursday Dec 29, 9:17pm EST, so every little bit helps and every dollar is appreciated.
Your invaluable support will help generate vital creative exchange and sustain neighborhood character.
Let art inspire you in 2012.
In marching with 10th Anniversary of 9/11, “Pre911/Twin Towers Once Stood,” 3rd group exhibition of ‘Pre911′ will be presented on September 11, 2011 at SB D Gallery
Three years ago, SB D Gallery curated and directed the first exhibition that stopped the life of Twin Towers as of September 10th, 2001, in effort to heal from the wound by bringing back the happy memories of Twin Towers before the terror.
As a closure, “Pre911:Twin Towers Once Stood” will have the finale this year marching with a decade of struggles, and will present your messages in forms of arts;Photographs, drawings, paintings, poems, sculptures, mixed media… without limited to the medium, we will share our soul and spirit united as one, the human.
All 75 heartfelt international artists’ will be participating with their art works to be displayed on HD screens, and also multiple fabric banners will be printed with images and messages to be hung at our next door gallery. Guests will walk through these ceiling high long banners to experience the memories of being inside or right in front of buildings.
‘Pre911:Twin Towers Once Stood’ book will be published as well which is for sale for $50. All the profit will be donated to 911 Families Association. You may purchase the book online at SB D Shop. Click here to purchase.
The exhibition will open on September 11, 2011, at 4pm and runs for two weeks.
My hope, as a resident living in downtown of Manhattan for 21 years and at the same time, curator and director of SB D Gallery, is to accept the life that is beyond the control of morality, and go on with the life finding comfort leaning on each others. It will NEVER be forgotten, nor healed, and that sharp stabbing into our souls on that specific day of terror will be remembered with the deep scar.
