The original Federal Hall was constructed in 1700 as New York’s City Hall and served as the first U.S. Capitol, witnessed the inauguration of the first U.S. President, and hosted the ratification of the Bill of Rights by the First Congress. The building that currently occupies the site, designed in 1842, was originally the United States Customs House and has been a hub of debate and dialogue throughout the evolution of U.S. political history.
The landmarked site on Wall Street will be host to the Storefront for Art and Architecture’s spring party, ARTIFACT, tomorrow night, and we have a special discount for Untapped Cities readers for $25 (Tickets will be $50 instead of $75). ARTIFACT celebrates contemporary forms of art and architectural practice that invite party goers to ACT, to seriously care about FACTS, and to reflect on the ART of architecture and design.
Use discount code UNTAPPEDSF to join this celebration that will honor Denise Scott Brown, whose visionary architectural practice has led to the re-examining of existing urban forms, and Murray Moss, whose design and curation work has been seminal in creating new and innovative objects from around the world.
Wander amongst new works by Adam McEwen, LOT-EK, and Murray Moss + Lobmeyr, and take in food and drinks by WhistlePig Rye Whiskey, Feudi di San Gregorio, Juice Press, Lagunitas Brewing Co, Monkey 47, Original New York Seltzer, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka, with music by José Parlá and Stefan Ruiz. An After Party (all are invited) will have a DJ set by Jon Santos.
