During the Spring of 2014 I directed “FABLES,” a public art series produced by Fourth Arts Block to explore the Lower East Side’s living cultural heritage, rich historical legacies, and current issues in public storytelling through visual art. “FABLES” was supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts/ Art Works and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in participation with The City Council. “FABLES” was presented in celebration of LES History month, the inaugural celebration of the rich and diverse history of the LES, which will now take place each year during the month of May.
Artists: Lexi Bella, Tamara Gayer, Theresa Loong & Laura Nova, Levan Mindiashvili, Miguel Trelles & Juan Fernando Morales-Nazario.
Artists were selected by a jury comprised of Legacy Russell, Ethan Vogt, John Bowman, and Molly Garfinkel.
Project Director: Keith Schweitzer (Director of Public Art, Fourth Arts Block)
