In Plain Sight: Art In Greenwich Village
Suggested Ages: All, Adult Friendly
Look for animal-themed public art hidden “in plain sight” throughout Greenwich Village’s 8th Street corridor – in abandoned storefronts, hidden along the street, and in shops and restaurants.
Three temporary public art installations in Astor Place by Kristina Libby bring to life a new series of animals known as Chunkos. The Chunkos were created as a universe of animals based on keystone animals. These big apex animals created whole ecosystems by being themselves. Utilizing animal forms within modern cultures and textures, Libby’s work draws attention to and invokes conversation with the concepts illuminated within the animal works. The Chunkos reappear in different mediums and activities throughout the 8th Street Corridor.
On Friday, June 10th, there will be an interactive public art painting exercise with Libby at Astor Place from 5-7pm. Music to accompany the painting exercise will be provided by Joey Rosin and Tal Yahalom. Curious artists of all ages are welcome to join as she paints in real time, with the help of the community, the inaugural animals in her Chunkos series.
