So I 'installed' my postcards at Bluestocking Books on 172 Allen St. in the Lower East Side (lower left image). When searching for local bookstores, a few friends told me about Bluestocking. I checked out their website and was excited by their mission.
I'm a Brooklyn girl...so I felt compelled to leave my anonymous mark there also! I chose the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts (MoCADA). They have a great little gift shop/bookstore where you can find African centered books and gift items made by local and international artists of color.
CEC Artslink presents Publicly Creative: A Public Art Workshop. Public art is a fast-growing discipline with many unexplored opportunities for artists and communities. This workshop is a hands-on intensive introduction to the field, outlining resources, logistics, opportunities, and examples of successful collaborations. Recognizing artistic initiative as a valuable asset and a catalyst for a dialogue and transformation, we will explore how site-specific collaborations in varied cultural, geographic and political areas can influence business, social awareness and economic development. Encouraging close inspection of the particular issues faced by a specific New York community chosen by the participants, the workshop and the resulting public art work(s) will provide a unique platform for the participants and the public to explore and appropriate the city’s landscapes.
