EFA Project Space
I'm participating in Elastic City's first-ever Spring Benefit. It's at EFA Project Space (39th St, Manhattan) on Thursday, 5/23 at 7:30pm.
It's gonna be a great night, as there will be: live drawing by legendary New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast, a crowdsourced Elastic City cocktail by expert bartenders, a DJ set by sound artist Maria Chavez, an otherworldly photobooth by Benjamin Frederickson & Juan Betancurth, mini-walks in the space by Elastic City artists, a special take-away by designer Riley Hooker, a raffle featuring prizes from a bunch of downtown arts orgs.
Elastic City is a wonderful org. They're the only walks organization in the world that commissions artists from all disciplines to lead participatory walks for the public. They're newly a 501c3 (non-profit) and it takes a while to get into the grant cycle. The benefit is to help pay their artists, liability insurance and salaries for staff. Your support would help us make that possible.
Would you be up for buying a ticket to the event? It's either $40 or $150.
Do it. Do it furiously.
