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.
