This August I had the opportunity to present some of my work at the New York Public Library. The Secret Life of the Clouds is a project I started a while ago, based in the idea that we don't really know what happens above the clouds. I imagine birds building cities in the sky having babies and living far from the noisy humans.
Hoy have until August 31st to visit the exhibition, located at the Bronx Library Center, 310 East Kingsbridge Rd, The Bronx, NY.
Many visitors have passed by leaving great reviews at the heritage center.
This is the third time I exhibit at the Library and it's always a great experience. The staff is always amazing. I am so glad they put all the effort in the world to keep that place alive.
May 14th I was part of a Dinner Without Agenda, organized by the Queens Museum. The purpose of this dinner where 10 artists and curators that don’t know each other meet, was to talk in an unstructured meeting, to start a conversation about how galleries and institutions influence your work.
After that interesting night someone from the museum asked me to write a blog about my experience. You can find the whole article HERE.
I want to thank the curator Miguel Luciano for inviting me, because it was a great experience. I hope more institutions would follow the Queens Museum example being more proactive with their communities.
This has been a very busy summer; one of the things I have done is organizing a live painting event at Boogie on the Boulevard with BxArts Factory and HeavenBound7 Sk8 Shop. Henry, the owner of the store, repurposed about 20 old skate decks sanded them and prep them to be painted. Many artists came out that day to encourage the community to be healthy and to show how every artist has a process and creativity is everywhere!
Thanks to Alex Fernandez, Alexis Mendoza, Elizabeth Ortiz, Giannina Gutierrez, Karen Pedrosa, Laura Alvarez, Leo Mojica, Louis Nieves, Natalia Zamparini, Shak Castillo, Steven McKenzie, Vanezza Cruz, Xavier Figueroa, and Yazmeen Collazo for your artistry and commitment! Because you all did an awesome job.
