We’ve seen quite a few artist-supported groups, teaming up with owners of empty ground-floor space, filling windows with art during this very difficult year, as we search for fun ways to connect while socially distancing.
But way before COVID-19, the nonprofit, ChaShaMa, supported artists by partnering with property owners, transforming unused space. In addition, they have provided free art classes for under-resourced communities, subsided 200 artist work spaces, and given 170 artists free space to present plus much much more.
This month, ChaShaMa brightens up our Spring with five lobby exhibitions and six brilliant artists. Take a virtual tour of each, below.
The nonprofit EcoArt Project announced the launch of Rebound-NYC, a new initiative repurposing empty storefronts as cultural pop-ups throughout New York City. Following the devastating effects of COVID-19 on New York’s businesses and streetscapes, EcoArt Project is teaming up with the nonprofit Chashama and local store owners to revitalize the streets of the city with exciting exhibitions that stimulate conversation on our environment and climate change through work by internationally-recognized visual artists and designers.
To celebrate Earth Day 2021, six artists create impactful experiences that investigate the state of our environment. The pop-ups engage artists working in visual and performing arts to present work with environmental themes, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and recycling in Bryant Park and Union Square.
Atmospheric Perspective: A Contemporary Approach to a Traditional Technique is a group show of twenty artists, members of the New York Artists Circle, who take a new approach to visualizing what exactly is the air we breathe and live in today.
