Karen KayLove Pedrosa: Graffiti and Miniature Trains
We have so many things to look forward to! Our anniversary is revved up to be another amazing birthday. Today, we introduce you to one of the many wonderful entertainers whose live artistry will be featured before we cut the cake, KayLove. Karen KayLove Pedrosa is an Advisory Board Member and a "Bronx born and based, first generation Puerto Rican artist who draws her inspiration from the vibrant, gritty, soulful streets of New York City, the lush campos of Puerto Rico and all the places in between." Her medium of choice is graffiti, "A child of the 80's, she was inspired by the museums that the trains provided, the roof tops murals, tags and colors that brightened up a once dirty and dingy Bronx." At our birthday party, she will be bombing* the tags** of supporters that purchase the experience, on the side of miniature trains.
Supporters will have a unique, KayLove piece and contribute to our fundraising goal for the evening.
Contributions collected this night will directly fund our 2017 free programs such as Nesting the Arts Project, among many others! Purchase your tickets to our anniversary party today and help us celebrate.
