Since its founding in the 17th century, New York City has been one of world’s most prolific producers of global culture and a witness to some of humanity’s most profound events. Art, Music, Finance, Politics and the never-ceasing wave of cultural overlap and transfusion truly make this city a profound experience for anyone passing through its gates. For over 100 years, amidst the chaos, the cacophony, and the change, the city has one constant that has linked its many geographical and cultural extremities… Its Public Transportation.

Join artists Jean-Pierre Roy and Michael Kagan as they celebrate one of the most ubiquitous icons of the NYC landscape, the MetroCard, in “Single Fare”. Open to all artists who want to participate, “Single Fare” places one constraint on the creative process: all work must be submitted on a used MetroCard. Drawings, paintings and tiny sculpture will be on display in one of the greatest combinations of hand-made and found art that New York City has ever witnessed.

New York’s cultural institutions have always succeeded on the strength of their communities and the Art World is no different. While inspired by the notion that the city’s subways and buses allow for a kind a creative interchange unmatched in human history, “Single Fare” seeks to create an art event outside of the Standard Gallery Model where Art and Artists will come together to form a monumental event made from a tiny, innocuous piece of plastic: The MetroCard!

The event will take place on Saturday, May 8th at 4pm until late. The artists’ studio at 224 Grand will be transformed into the “Single Fare” exhibition space through May 12th. Send all MetroCards to 705 Driggs Ave # 3 Brooklyn, NY 11211 or drop them at the “Single Fare” Drop Box at 224 Grand st.
