- ‘Writing On It All’ Reclaims Space For Community Arts On Governor’s Island [Bowery Boogie]: There’s one more week to write and draw on a Nolan Park House. Just a short ferry ride away from the LES, Governors Island is an adventure that we should all take, and regularly as weather allows. For one more week you can catch the community-oriented interactive installation, ‘Writing On It All.’ Nolan Park House 11 has been transformed into a community owned space, where even the most painful concepts holding progressive society hostage are addressed head-on.
- New 50-Foot ‘STIK’ Figure Appears on Allen Street [Bowery Boogie]: With the COST and Dain collaboration no longer in play at Allen and Delancey Streets, another revered street artist is at bat. UK-based STIK has been on the block since Tuesday to impart a token stick figure to the west-facing exterior of 55 Delancey.
