The Lower East Side-based street artist Lady Millard alerted us to a super cool Kickstarter campaign for an upcoming preview exhibition for the “UNDER ONE ROOF: Art for the Arts” project. The show is planned as a kind of guerilla exhibition of street art and its influence on contemporary popular culture. The show is part of a larger project involving a group of some 50 artists that is renovating and turning an old brownstone house in the Bronx into a shared, public live-in artist studio space. The campaign is to fund the exhibition, as well as a documentary about Under One Roof. The show runs from May 17 – 30 and will include artwork by artists such as Swoon, Ben Frost, Street Level Culture, and 4Fun, as well as work by Lady Millard herself.
In our ongoing photo series What’s Outside the Window? is this image of a couple hugging on Orchard Street, as seen through the plate glass front wall of the Dressing Room Bar, in New York’s Lower East Side. The girl looks sleepy and affectionate, while the guy is checking his cellphone and seems to be texting.
In the latest installment of our ongoing photo project series What’s Outside the Window?, here’s an image of the view from our Delta airlines window seat of the control tower at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) in New York. An El Al airlines’ Boeing 747 jumbo jet is parked at Terminal 4 in the foreground.
In Vol. 29 of the photo project series What’s Outside the Window? are these images we took at sunrise this morning of the downtown Manhattan skyline as seen through the window panes of an old-school lofts building in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
Here’s another one of those massive “eye” wheat-paste street art pieces by the French artist JR. This one is on the side of a lofts apartment building next to the Williamsburg Bridge, in the Willamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. The placement of the artwork near the busy bridge ensures that a lot of people will see the eye, including the millions of passengers annually who ride the J/Z subway trains that pass over the bridge every few minutes. There’s a lot of new work by JR in New York City recently.
