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.

Nearly 150 Years, McSorley’s Ale House Continues Its Legacy, Light or Dark, as an Landmark in East Village, NYC.
Established in 1854 by Irish John McSorley in East Village, NYC, McSorley’s Old Ale House has been a gathering place, a drinking hole, the subject of art and literature and even a United States supreme court controversy. Everyone from Abe Lincoln to John Lennon have indulged in a “One and One.” Woody Guthrie rallied the early American union movement from a table in the back – guitar in hand while constitutional attorneys Faith Seidenberg and Karen DeCrow had to take their case to the U.S. Supreme Court to gain access – women finally being allowed entry in 1970! From it’s humble origins as an Irish workingman’s saloon – cheese and crackers on the house-ale for pennies more, to its discovery by the mainstream in a 1940′s LIFE magazine pictorial, McSorley’s is steeped in a cultural cacophony of Americana. Presidents, residents, authors and thieves – the lot of humanity has sat and shared, all obeying the McSorley’s golden rule “Be Good or Be Gone”.
When McSorley’s first opened in 1854, it was one of 2,400 saloons in New York City. Now, it is the ONLY saloon where still serve up dark and light ale to the locals and tourists. Nothing much has been changed at McSorley’s since its opening. The interiors and food are almost about the same. Two mugs served for each order and their signature burgers and chili are still reasonable in price as well.
No women were allowed in 1970. With feminism was high in the movement, Faith Seidenberg and Karen De Crow won the Supreme Court appeal to legalize the allowance of females to McSorley’s. Although the place was not and still is not kind of place where women would like to hang out, this remarkable change in 1970 sure turned the place into something else.
