NEW: Brooklyn Utopias: In TRANSITion Closing Party and book launch, January 10

9 Dec

Haven’t had a chance to see Brooklyn Utopias: In TRANSITion yet?  Recommended by multiple media (News 12 Brooklyn: “a way to think differently about your next subway or bus ride”) the gallery exhibition and corresponding outdoor sculpture by Emily Weiskopf have also been highlighted in DNAInfo, Gothamist, Brownstoner, and Archetizer. See complete press coverage HERE.

Our new January 10 closing event will offer a final opportunity to discuss the exhibit with the artist and curators. Artist Marie Christine Katz will also present the culminating performance of  “Knitting… i need you” an ongoing interactive project. Through several scheduled events over the course of the exhibition’s run, Katz collected community members’ transportation stories while also offering knitting lessons and conducting a Twitter guided walk Let’s Take a Walk at OSH. At the closing party, Katz will recount stories told during these knitting sessions, while creating a temporary installation of knitted material. Leading up to the final event, Katz will hold several additional knitting and storytelling sessions:

Saturday, January 4th, 1-4pm
Tuesday,  January  7th, 11am-2pm
** Note the artist will be “roaming” around the OSH area and may be in the house, at the nearby S’nice cafe, or in the park.

The closing event will also unveil a new full-color exhibition catalog by curator Katherine Gressel, documenting the exhibit and public art, and expected to be available for –pre order in early January 2014.
