Sculpture Exhibit "Encircle" September 5 - October 3, 2020 The West 132nd Street Block Association Garden, West 132nd Street, New York
Why Art now ?
Amid the pandemic, political turmoil and demand for racial justice and human rights, why Art now ?
Art is a transcending experience, especially needed now, when our mundane lives are abnormally constricted and the dignity of people in our communities are compromised.
The exhibition is a collaborative project by four NYC-based fellow artists, from four different countries, who have gathered together with a purpose to create a sanctuary for souls, in the beautiful community garden; an offering to relax, re-energize and take a short sweet break from feeling weighed down by life.
The title “Encircle” comes from the idea to draw an imaginary circle around the viewer, circumscribing a space and a time for enjoyment and care for each other.
This exhibit is to welcome the community as the garden reopens in the beginning of fall.
