In Plain Sight Exhibit

Jun 5, 2022

Greenwich Village, long a hot spot for art and architecture, will play host to In Plain Sight, an immersive animal-themed public art exhibit from June 10-12. The exhibit inspired by the unique history of animals in art and architecture in the neighborhood is a celebration of the resilience, courage and creativity of New Yorkers of all walks of life. “We wanted to create an exhibit that felt joyful while being interesting for all ages in our community,” shared Rachel Brandon, the Marketing and Events Director for the Village Alliance Business Improvement District. “This collaboration with both Kristina Libby and Gillie and Marc brought the opportunity to highlight numerous New York-based artists who incorporate animals in their practice.” On Friday, June 10th, there will be an interactive public art painting exercise with Libby at Astor Place from 5-7pm. 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
