For those that can’t make it to Staten Island, Staten Island Arts is bringing an online art exhibition, and music to you. Kicking-off the month with the art exhibition, Know Me, and a new streaming series, People Say: The Staten Island Sound, broadcast live from ArtSpace. Let’s take a look.
Know Me is the exploration of identity through the eyes of eight Staten Island artists. The exhibit challenges the viewer to consider the inner world of another, and the minute-by-minute decisions that, together as an evolving whole, create the story of one’s life. Know Me? Know Me. Featuring work by Kofi Antwi, Flint Gennari, Elvia Iannaccone Gezlev, Jessica L Gianna, Daniel Jared Smith, Windy Nicely, Laura Pannone, and Tabitha Lee Turchio.
ArtSpace | “Know Me will be on view, online, through April 2021.
Streaming live from ArtSpace on Wednesday, March 10th from 7:00 ~ 9:00pm, People Say: The Staten Island Sound. This live broadcast brings together a diverse case of talented musicians from across the Staten Island borough at the invitation of local composer/drummer, Darrell Smith.
The inaugural event features Eddie Jackson Group, Mike Morreale Group, Karlus Trapp Group, Goon Dads, and poet Phoebe Blue. First set’s at 7pm; second at 8pm. Plug in your best speakers, tune in, and catch a vibe.
We can’t leave Staten Island without sharing an ‘open call to Staten Island cooks’ for this very cool project, Every Plate Tells a Story series, collecting stories, recipes, photos, and histories related to Staten Island Food Lore.
