Art Hub 2017!

  • Just getting started!

Kicking off 2017 with another fabulous Art Hub curated by Amber (AJ) Kellie, Danny McLean and Leon Tillman this past Saturday, February 18, 2017! Themed "all-black" for Black History month but welcoming to all those dedicated to creating and appreciating art and culture, the Art Hubs are fast becoming the hippest scene in Bed-Stuy! Don't miss the next one in early April!

And check out the videos from the opening:

Holiday Art Show

  • Max with his personal "migration" paintings based on the Migration Series by artist Jacob Lawrence.
Our fall season of workshops culminated in a Holiday Art Show in December. Inspired by the Migration Series by Jacob Lawrence on exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art, students made their own series of panels to show an important journey in their lives. These included a family's move from Canarsie to Bed-Stuy, from Belize to Brooklyn, from Arizona to Brooklyn, from Brooklyn to South Carolina and back again, as well as a visit to family in St. Vincents. Students shared their work with family and friends at the opening with refreshments. A good time was had by all ages!
