Why An Art Fair Sponsors a Local Blog [SPONSOR]

When you see the little tag next to a post that says “Sponsored,” you might be wondering what that means and if the brand behind it has any vested interest in the community they’re trying to reach. For Superfine!, as a contemporary art fair founded upon a community of artists and curators, you can rest assured that we do.

As a former Lower East Side resident (now DUMBO), my very first New York happy hour was a Bowery Boogie event. When I opened my first business in the LES, Bowery Boogie was right there, diligently reporting every twist and turn. To this day, local outlets like Bowery Boogie are – in my opinion – the single best way to find out what’s happening in and near your neighborhood. That’s why we choose to sponsor them, and create bulletins that make readers aware of what we have going on in hopes that we’re able to provide a fun, welcoming space for locals to connect with artists and their work in a relaxed and enjoyable setting.

We really, really want Boogie-rs to experience what our artists have brought to the table at Superfine! in SoHo this week. From May 1-5, more than 80 artists are showing incredible work, much of it priced under $1,000. We’ve also got a program on tap that spans from the philosophical (panel discussions on moral accountability and censorship in art) to the bacchanal (our champagne washed opening night bash) to the just plain fun (portraits of your dog courtesy of local artist Ben Lenovitz).

We want Boogie readers to enjoy the fair so much that we’re offering you a 48 hour flash sale on passes. Use the code BOOGIE50 for 50% off of all passes purchased before 10pm on 5/2 (this includes weekend passes.) Also, don’t forget to check out our partners over at Moniker Art Fair, a few blocks north in Noho (dual passes are available.)

Tickets at superfinenyc.eventbrite.com – use code BOOGIE50 for half off through 10pm on 5/2.

Those anti-looting plywood barriers are coming down as stores are finally reopening. For street artists, though, it’s a mad scramble to reclaim the work they created to beautify the blight.

Rosario’s Pizza will Look for a New LES Location

Losing Rosario’s Pizza, much like its old neighbor Bereket, is the elimination of yet another connection to the old Lower East Side. The pizza joint held down the northwest corner of Orchard and Stanton Streets for more than twenty years, and spent the preceding decades just around the corner. However, the retirement of manager/owner Sal […]
