The wallspace beside the On Stellar Rays gallery is officially its own exhibition space. What began with a mural by RETNA one year ago is now a fully-fledged project with a revolving door of art programming. It’s called the “Rivington Wall,” courtesy of Parasol Projects. Artwork is scheduled to change every four to six weeks.
The latest piece – third since inception – is simply a statement in opposition to the practice of using Rhino horns for medicinal purposes. Artist Pryce Lee scrawled the notice onto the wall.
Meanwhile, next week will see the arrival of a collaborative mural with the Boys and Girls Club of New York. Local children will help Andrew Poneros decorate the wall. Outline stenciling begins onsite Monday, and the children will color in the lines days later.
There is also a new website for the Rivington Wall in the works.
Parasol Projects operates six white-box gallery spaces in the downtown area. But mostly the Lower East Side. It’s another in a long line of management brands that focus on pop-up events.
