Artists Flood To Help Sandy Victims
Art is therapeutic for both the artist and the patron; with the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy occurring this week, two moving exhibits are on display.
Come Together: Surviving Sandy, Year 1 features more than 200 artists over 100,000 square feet. Be prepared to experience the full range of artistic modalities, as this show includes: a sculpture garden, film, music, and poetry from artists affected by the storm. On November 9th, a screening of the Sandy related film Shored Up will be shown, followed by a panel discussion. The exhibit is being held at Industry City located in Sunset Park, Brooklyn and runs from October 20 through December 15. Free and open to all.
Rising waters: Photographs of Sandy is a collaboration between the International Center of Photography and The Museum of The City of New York exhibiting a collection of Sandy related photographs from more than 1,000 professional and amateur artists. It runs from October 29 through March 2. Suggested admission.
After heavy subject matter, it might be time for some levity; coincidently, NYC Comedy Week kicks off more than 80 comedy events beginning October 28 and runs through November 10.
