Recap: Con Artist Celebrates 4 Years on Ludlow Street
This image has been archived or removed.
When the Con Artist Collective debuted in 2010, its mission was simple yet ambitious. Co-working space for Lower East Side artists at a reasonable price point. The office – a cramped and dank dungeon at 119 Ludlow. Four years later, the creative company is bursting at the seems, with over 250 members and a brand-spankin-new storefront workshop to its name.
Con Artist owner Brian Shevlin marked the four-year milestone with an anniversary party last Friday night.
Guests were encouraged to make art on the designated wallspace using Sharpies and paint brushes; tables also had supplies. A sizable turnout from the street art scene was in attendance. AndrewAndrew deejayed the early set; DJ Smurfo took on the late-night duties.
