FEAST : Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics
FEAST is happening again! This Saturday April 4 6–8PM in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. My dear friends gathered their minds together and developed a totally successful and fun way to fund artists in our neighborhood. I went to the last FEAST and it was incredible. They raised $756 cash for the winning proposal by artist Dan Funderburgh who plans to create a neighborhood wide wallpaper beautification project. FEAST concept is: you donate what you can at the door for your meal (a delicious vegetarian dish by One&Supp), read artists proposals, VOTE for the one you like best, eat and be merry. At the end of the dinner after the votes have been tallied MC Jeff Hnilicka announces the winner. The bag of cash is delivered to the winning artist. Viola! The winning artist then has 4-6 weeks to complete their project—and exhibits/performs their artwork at the following FEAST.
This FEAST should be totally amazing! NPR did a nice little story on the first one.. And my sweet, Brock Shorno/Routine Investigations is directing and performing in a very special musical springtime ritual. Should be totally trippy, I promise.
(make sure you come early, we’re expecting a full house—even better come by at 3pm and help set up! hearts and hands.)
Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics
FEAST is a recurring public dinner designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund new and emerging art makers.
My talented culinary, arts & community minded friends have organized an ideal dinner cooked up in a church basement this Saturday Feb 21 5-8pm in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. If you live in the area please stop by!
Please visit the new website FEAST for more information. Pay what you wish—all proceeds go to an artist’s proposal that you vote on. Whichever artist wins he/she receives the funds to create a project that will be exhibited/performed at next month’s FEAST. Pretty amazing! They are getting lots of press. WNYC will be there interviewing people for their blog. Rad!
There is nothing like a handmade can good. Luckily I found a nice portrait of cans stacked and ready for nuclear war. These incredibly colored, quality American photographs are from our dear Library of Congress who are hip to the Flickr scene. Snuggle up to screen and flip through all 173 pages. You may need a few hours and a snack.
