Hacia Afuera is a public art festival in East Harlem-El Barrio. In recent years gentrification has become a reality for many of El Barrio's residents and thus Hacia Afuera is to be used as a vehicle to reclaim the public space be it a garden, a sidewalk, or walls in celebration of its cultural diversity.
The good news about this is that Chinitas and I sent a proposal for the exhibition and were chosen among various artists to participate in this show. This will be the first exhibition we'll do in collaboration and are pretty excited. So, save the date and prepare for an art weekend, August 22 and 23. Check out the site! Our names are there.
Art Exhibitions Featuring: Adrian Roman, Roberto de Jesus, a Live Painting by Manny Vega, Sarah Olson, Carlos Martinez, Heather O'Brien, Cacy Forgenie, Louis Nieves, Ale Bara & China Yon, Alex White-Mazzarella , Tara Parsons, Michael De Feo, and Daniel Cordani!
