QUESTIONS in French or English..soon in Spanish...

The statue of Liberty turned 125 on October 2011
Pursuing my interest in her since 2007 with a  collage and by showing "crowns" since the last 2 years, I'm now asking for your help and participation.
What comes to your mind when speaking about her?
Are you willing to express it so I could integrate it, somehow, in the work to be shown in "Exposure 2011"
Thanks

A propos de l expo je sollicite ta participation a partir de la reflexion sur le theme de l anniversaire de la Statue de la Liberte qui fete ses 125 ans

Help Save the arts

HELP SAVE THE ARTS!
November 22, 2011 

Last week, the County Executive released his proposed
 2012 budget for Westchester County.  He has slated
 the art
for a 50% cut - this makes our advocacy efforts extremely
 urgent.

The cut will affect next year's Basic Program Support grants
 provided
by ArtsWestchester, upon which the Neuberger Museum of Art and many 

other arts organizations rely.  

The Board of Legislators can add - and delete - items before they approve

 the budget.

We have a small window of time to convince them to restore funding 
for the arts, but we need your help.  
 
WHAT CAN YOU DO?

Legislators need to see that their constituents want them to support the arts. 
Here's what you can do:
1)  Attend public budget hearings and show your support. 
Your presence matters!
Hearings are at 7 pm.

November 30: Somers High School, 
120 Primrose Street, Lincolndale


December 6: Legislative Chambers, 
148 Martine Ave, White Plains

2)  Send a message to your legislator automatically simply 
by entering 
your zip code. 

3) Share this message with your friends on Twitter, Facebook, etc. 
Hundreds of emails will make a difference, so please spread the word!


THANK YOU.

ArtExpo New york Calls For Artists....

Dear,
Artexpo New York announces new dates and location!

We have 2 very exciting announcements for Artexpo New York 2012.

1. Artexpo will run March 22-25, 2012 at Pier 92 concurrently with the Architectural Digest Home Design Show.

The Architectural Digest Home Design Show, produced by MMPI and co-sponsored by The New York Times, is a four-day event that features hundreds of manufacturers, retailers and designers showcasing products and services for the high-end residential design market. The 2011 Show’s attendance and spending patterns defied current trends as more than 40,000 designers, architects, retail stores, set decorators, visual merchandisers, members of the media, celebrities and affluent consumers shopped the 10th-annual event.

2. Artexpo will return to a 4 day event with Trade days scheduled for Thursday and Friday! This allows more time to spend with the ever important publishers, gallery owners, artists, designers, architects, consultants and retailers.

These positive changes will result in new dates and a new floor plansituated on Pier 92. The show will take place March 22-25, 2012.

Stay tuned for updates on Events, Education, Hotels and Registration.

Exhibitors please note: The new floor plan is going to fill up fast! If you haven’t already signed up and plan to participate, I encourage you to do so. We expect to be sold out by November!

Thank you and we look forward to a successful Artexpo New York 2012.


Sincerely,

Eric Smith
Show Director, Artexpo New York

FLUXUS AND THE ESSENTIAL QUESTIONS OF LIFE
September 9–December 3, 2011
Fluxus—which began in the 1960s as an international network of artists, composers, and designers―resists categorization as an art movement, collective, or group. It also defies traditional geographical, chronological, and medium-based approaches. Instead, Fluxus participants employ a “do-it-yourself” approach, relating their activities to everyday life and to viewers’ experiences. Offering a fresh assessment of Fluxus, the show and its installation are designed to encourage multiple interpretations, exploring what they can teach us about our own position in the world and the works’ relationships to key themes of human existence. Fluxus and the Essential Questions of Life features over 100 works, including documents, objects, event scores (short scripts outlining actions to be performed), and Fluxkits (collections of scores, games, and ephemera). Curated by Jaquelynn Baas and organized by the Hood Museum of Art at Dartmouth College, the exhibition draws extensively on the George Maciunas Memorial Collection at the Hood and is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue.
