1 st BxArts Factory’s Fundraising Exhibition
APRIL 18, 2015 - From 5 to 10 pm
Location: Gun Hill Brewing Company 3227 Laconia Ave, Bronx, NY 10469
BxArts Factory is pleased to announce their first international small format fundraising exhibit 12”X12”. The event will take place at the Gun Hill Brewing Company on Saturday, April 18th from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
12”X12” is a compilation of artworks created by renowned and up and coming international and local artists in multiple mediums. We have over 150 pieces from artists in Mexico, Indonesia, Germany, Spain, and, of course, local Bronx and NYC artists!
If you don't own a piece of artwork or if you are a collector, this is an amazing opportunity to buy some art. You'll also be contributing to the fund to renovate our, soon to be, space near The Hub in The Bronx! It is a win-win situation!
The BxArts Factory's new space will be an incubator for Bronx artists to grow, collaborate and create. We will be a multipurpose space that will include: an art research center, resident artists’ studios, performance space, classrooms and gallery space. The BxArts Factory endeavors to become a preeminent Arts institution in The Bronx, dedicated to the promotion and use of the Arts as a vital tool to inspire artists and communities within the borough to contribute to the social and economic development of The Bronx. Help us reach our goal!
The evening will be filled with music, art, and a great vibe! Entertainment will be provided by local Bronx talents Elena Rosa Music, 2 in the Afternoon and Eve’s Fault, among other surprise performances. Additionally, guests will be able to enjoy live art by local artists, a selfie station, and many other fun surprises! We will also have local food truck Antojitos Mexicanos joining the festivities just outside the brewery!
