Out to See
A Community Initiative to Feature Local Art and Public Programming throughout Historic South Street Seaport
March 1st and 2nd, 2014
11am to 11pm
South Street Seaport
Visual and performing arts collide in the heart of the South Street Seaport on the weekend of March 1st and 2nd with a vibrant community initiative, OUT TO SEE. Throughout the weekend, the public will be treated to a diverse array of artwork in a variety of mediums -- sculpture, performance, photography, drawing, painting, video, and music -- that will be presented throughout the South Street Seaport, installed in stores, restaurants, vacant spaces, and venues like Fresh Salt, Cannon’s Walk, FRONT ROW CUBE, and more.
Artists in the show hail from across the city and the Seaport itself, including Jonathan Durham, Mark Gagnon, Elisabeth Smolarz, Mary Mattingly, George Bolster, Diego Medina, Tattfoo Tan, and Will Corwin, among others, whose artwork was selected by Sara Reisman, independent curator and director of New York City’s Percent for Art program. “Artworks will be strategically installed to highlight the unique character of the neighborhood’s natural and architectural landscape, creatively engaging with independently-owned businesses and underutilized spaces in the area,” elaborates Sara.
Participating artists include:
In addition to the visual art program, Saturday evening will also include music, organized by local composer-songwriter Django Voris. “We’re really excited about the variety of performers we have -- Red Horse, Ocean Carolina, Watermelon Sugar, and Little Band of Sailors. There’ll be a little bit of something for everyone,” says Django. The bands will be featured in the FRONT/ROW CUBE, a popular new venue that is part of the South Street Seaport’s ongoing SEE/CHANGE program.
