Events Around Town
More Art brings artists into the classroom to collaborate, work with, and learn from the students rather than to 'teach' them. Their latest project is “The Mysterious House of Colors” by Justin Berry and Clinton Middle School's students.
Justin Berry gave students a chance to curate and produce an art exhibition. After visiting galleries in their neighborhood the students were asked to think of objects and environments that could become part of a compelling art exhibition. Berry organized a mixture of commissioned and pre-existing works for this exhibition based on the drawings the children produced.
Justin Berry Then asked a second group of children to think of what the images of both the exhibition and the previous group’s drawings might represent. The goal is to present an art exhibit about the stories inspired by the art.
Visit the Waymaker Gallery to discover the exhibition. Reception October 31, 7-9 pm Open: Oct 31-Nov 22, 2009

Deana Lawson Corporeal
November 2-December 23, 2009
Reception: November 5, 5-8pm
Deana Lawson's photographs examine how the body informs personal, political, and historical identities. Her psychological portraits seem to start out in one shape before morphing into something unexpected. Their apparent transparency at first glance dissolves into a complex set of questions about the people who are imaged and the nature of photographing, questions that will never have clear and finite answers, no matter how hard and long we look. More here.

OPENING PARTY TONIGHT: Thurs OCT 1 @ 6-9pm Theaterlab, 137 14th St Featuring AiOP artists on 14th St, musician Roland P. Young, and 3 floors of improvisational wonder!
Now in its fifth year, the annual Art in Odd Places festival brings 60+ artworks to 14th Street, all of which focus on the theme of signs. The mission of the festival is to "explore the odd, ordinary and ingenious in the spectacle of everyday life."
“It seemed that at this particular point in time, people are more attuned to signs and omens,” says Radhika Subramaniam, Director and Chief Curator for Sheila C. Johnson Design Center at Parsons The New School for Design, who, along with Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Artist Residencies Director Erin Donnelly, is guest-curating this year’s festival.

For over twenty years, The Franklin Furnace Fund has awarded grants to emerging performance artists to allow them to do major work in New York. Events are presented in partnership with collegial venues, or, in the city environment.
Franklin Furnace has no curator; each year, a new panel of artists reviews all proposals. The peer panel system allows all kinds of artists from all over the world an equal shot at presenting their work in New York.
Eleven recipients will receive $5,818 grants this year, including current LMCC Workspace resident, Michael Paul Britto, a born and bred Brooklynite.
Britto graduated from the City College of New York. His works range from videos to digital photography, sculpture, and performance. He has participated in residencies at the New Museum for Contemporary Art, Smack Mellon, and The Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation. Britto was been featured in exhibitions at El Museo del Barrio, The Studio Museum of Harlem, The Zacheta National Gallery in Warsaw and the Victoria and Albert Museum in England.
