Mid Year Makings: An Exhibition of Works in Progress, Opening Friday January
30, 2009 from 5-8pm
New Urban Arts presents “Mid Year Makings: An Exhibition of Works in
Progress,” an art exhibition featuring work by
high school students that celebrates imagination, curiosity and
collaboration. See a print installation of raindrops,
pinhole photographs of our city, and Bones, a skeleton that evolved from a
hand-drawn illustration to a sweatshirt jacket.
Don’t miss the gallery opening event on Friday January 30, 2009 from 5-8pm.
This event is free and open to the public
and will include many opportunities for you to join us in creative practice.
Participate in our Idea Exchange…take an idea
and leave an idea. Also, see and participate in the final showing of artist
mentor Ben Fino-Radin’s kinesthetic window
installation Earth Tones.
But Wait. That’s Not All…
In response to this historic inauguration, hear Random Acts of Sound blasted
through the gallery with voices from our
studio describing what ³change² means to them.
Also, listen to the sounds of DJ Masta J as you enjoy our winter love of ice
cream floats… not just any floats, we’re talking
coke, root beer, strawberry, orange with chocolate and vanilla ice cream.
Choose your flavor and make your own
This multidisciplinary art exhibition is on view in our gallery from January
30-February 13, weekdays 10am-7pm, at 743
