There is a lot of activities going on in New York City and one of them is Elastic City. Who and what is Elastic City? From their website:

Elastic City intends to make its audience active participants in an ongoing poetic exchange with the places we live in and visit.

Artists are commissioned by Elastic City to create their own walks for the public, often using sensory-based techniques, reinvented folk rituals and other exercises to investigate and intervene with the daily life of the city, its variously defined communities, and the politics of individual and group identity.

This year Elastic City has a free 12-day NYC walk festival  this month.  Here are those events:

SPOTLIGHT ARTIST: KEITH HARING

May 13, 2014

Hello and good morning everyone. I hope y’all had a nice and great weekend. I’d already had it set to post this month’s artist, but I’ve pushed that for June. This artist and activist, Keith Haring is May’s Spotlight Artist. His birthday was May 4, which means he would’ve been 56.

Crack Is Wack’ by Keith Haring. paintingandframe.com

I’ve seen his work growing up, but I couldn’t place the person responsible. What I like about it was the way Haring created and pieced his work. Not only was it bold and colorful, but they all had a message. That’s what caught my attention. His works expressed the concepts of war, sexuality, birth, death and was part of the New York City street culture of the 1980s.

His interest in drawing stemmed from an early age from his father, who was an amateur cartoonist. He attended the Ivy School of Professional Art in Pittsburgh to study commercial art, but soon he dropped out, due to his fading interest. He continued to work and study on his own and in 1978 had he had a solo exhibition at the Pittsburgh Arts and Craft center. Soon Haring moved to New York and attended the School of Visual Arts or SVA for short. That’s where his career took a different path. He began exploring with installation, performance, collage, and video.

Haring’s public attention was in the subways of NYC. He used chalk on blank, advertising  paper panels that hung on the subway walls. He organized exhibitions at Club 57. Between 1982 and 1989, Haring created over more than 50 works, which was recognized internationally . In 1986 he created the ‘Crack Is Wrack’ mural. By 1988 Haring was diagnosed with HIV. A year later he established the Keith Haring Foundation, which still provides funding, with artistic imagery to those infected by AIDS/HIV.

Unfortunately, Haring passed away in February 1990 due to AIDS related complications. His work is still recognized in museums all over. I think if Haring lived, he would continue not only his colorful works, but the causes he cared most.

Enjoy your Tuesday and be blessed always!

MAKING IT

I was browsing around online, when I came across this documentary, Making It, from another art blogging site, Illustration Age.

As it states on their website makingitpictures.com:

“MAKING IT” is a Art Documentary about the daily struggles of making a living, staying creative, and making it all up as we go along. The Documentary features three Illustrators, Andrew Bawidamann, Eric Fortune, and Brian Ewing.

This documentary gives you a peek at what each of these artists at how they achieved their goals, what pushes them, and where they see themselves.

Don’t know when the documentary comes out, but I do know I want to see it. We’ll just keep checking their website for more information.

Come back this weekend for At the Museum and I have something to share with you guys too. Enjoy your Wednesday and be blessed always!
