Ground Floor at IDEAS CITY
May 4, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
Artists Alliance Inc, in collaboration with artist Dina Weiss, is proud to present Ground Floor, a participatory art project that explores potential uses for the ground floor of the Seward Park Urban Renewal Area (SPURA) as untapped capital in the Lower East Side. Taking place during the New Museum’s Ideas City Festival, Ground Floor will provide visitors with a forum for brainstorming, discussion, mapping and collaborative art-making.
Guided SPURA Site Tours led by architect and Lower East Side resident, Guido Hartray, will be offered at 12 and 3pm, meeting at Artists Alliance Inc’s StreetFest table (on Bowery between Houston & Stanton) and ending at the Delancey Pedestrian Plaza (131 Delancey Street). Ground Floor tours are presented in partnership with The Lowline and Municipal Arts Society’s Jane Walks.
A very special thank you to artist Dina Weiss for bringing her project and vision to our organization. We would also like to thank the following organizations for their generous support and collaboration: New Museum, LES BID, The Lowline, and The Municipal Art Society. This event would not be possible without the creativity and partnership of each of these organizations as well as the help of our volunteers.
