Bronx Mural Reveal Press Release

(BRONX, NY) – May 5, 2016 – Bronx Terminal Market, in collaboration with The Bronx Museum of the Arts, will showcase a new community mural inspired by scenic outdoor locations in the Bronx, at a mural unveiling on Thursday, May 19th at 10:00 AM on the pedestrian bridge off of River Avenue and 151st Street.

The Bronx Museum Community Mural at Bronx Terminal Market is part of a greater initiative to integrate public art into the shopping center’s community space. From a grandiose 20’x40’ landscape, the mural will feature the High Bridge, Ferry Point Park, New York Botanical Garden, and Joyce Kilmer Park. The mural imagery is depicted through a gradient color palette based on photographs and sketches of the Bronx by artist Lindsey Warren, alumni of the Bronx Museum's emerging artist program, Artist in the Marketplace (AIM).

“The Bronx Museum of the Arts is delighted to collaborate with the historical site, Bronx Terminal Market, on this outdoor mural project alongside Artist in the Marketplace (AIM) alum Lindsey Warren. In addition to creating a platform for an emerging artist, The Bronx Museum Community Mural at Bronx Terminal Market celebrates the history and beauty of the borough with the local community through the arts.” said Holly Block, Executive Director of The Bronx Museum of the Arts. 

“At Bronx Terminal Market, we pride ourselves in creating a diverse array of programming to serve our community.  It has been a rewarding process to work directly with The Bronx Museum of the Arts and the artist, Lindsey Warren, to develop her vision into a public art piece that the community can enjoy," said Ed Hilla, Bronx Terminal Market Senior General Manager.

The event will include a speaking program by Bronx Terminal Market Senior General Manager, Ed Hilla, artist, Lindsey Warren, Bronx Museum of the Arts Executive Director, Holly Block, and an unveiling of the community mural.

To attend the mural unveiling, please RSVP. Limited space is available.

BTM Mural in Progress

The Bronx Museum Community Mural at Bronx Terminal Market

The mural is made up of 16 5'x10' panels, arranged into four images. Each image presents a location in the Bronx, significant for its visual interest, whether natural or constructed. I photographed each location and developed specific color palettes based on a conversation between local color and placement within the mural configuration. I had to take perspective of the viewer into consideration as most visitors will see the mural from below.  This is the largest painting I have completed!

Ryman Arts Alumni Exhibition

I have a few paintings in this show. I hope to see you at the reception on Saturday, November 21st! 

Over the past 25 years, Ryman Arts has engaged over 6,000 Southern California teens in our core program and provided outreach activities to more than 18,000 inner city students. Almost all graduates go on to college, many alumni work in the creative industries, and all are poised for personal success.

This vibrant community of culturally diverse teens comes from more than 150 zip codes across six counties in Southern California. More than 80 percent live in low-income neighborhoods where schools provide little access to art and dropout rates are high.

Collaboration with Gilded Age NYC

A few of my paintings are included in Gilded Age's spring show at their South Street Seaport store. Racked NY  wrote that "Gilded Age chose that neighborhood because they wanted to be part of the revitalization after Hurricane Sandy. The store will also feature three to four New York artists each month, serving as a platform to jumpstart their careers. This initiative is in partnership with Chashama, a non-profit that supports the city's art community."

Leaving Wassaic

April has been a great month! It's sad to say goodbye to this studio, the town and the people I met here. I managed to fill this wall with different types and sizes drawings and I will definitely continue making the small gouache and large graphite drawings. Now back to Brooklyn, painting and the imagery I can't stop reproducing.
