An Art Show to Benefit the Educational Alliance
A new art exhibit to support the Educational Alliance and its Manny Cantor Center kicks off this weekend.
Drawing inspiration from the recently-deposed Hester Street Fair, “CONTINUE TO BE” is a celebratory show welcoming the warmth and hope of springtime in the city, featuring both new and old work from local photographers who have documented life throughout the trials of 2020 through present day.
They’ve secured the use of 324 Grand Street for this particular iteration; if all goes well, they hope to organize the event biannually – with different artists and mediums, but always with the mission to raise money for local children and the Manny Cantor Center art school.
All prints are selling for $250, and come with a certificate of authenticity from each artist and will be shipped out in late May.
“There is still so much the city has to offer its creative community and the timing feels ripe to reconnect,” the press release states. “As many of us itch to explore far away places and travel once again, this show hopes to inspire passersby to keep up the spirit of engaging with our surroundings, our local politics, our environment and continue to challenge the status quo.”
