Art and Activism: “Takin’ it to the Streets” @ SVA Theatre
Sep 4 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Art and Activism: “Takin’ it to the Streets”

Wednesday, September 4, 2019

SVA Theatre
333 West 23rd Street

The third annual Art & Activism event produced by School of Visual Arts, Division of Continuing Education, celebrates the power of collectives, performance as political activism, and artistic activations of public spaces.

A panel discussion will present a collaboration between Sing for Hope, an organization connecting artists, music and the city streets; and the Hetrick-Martin Institute, which provides social services, community, and arts programming to LGBTQ youth. With the support of artist Joan Di Lieto, and illustrator and SVA faculty member Grant Shaffer, youths from HMI’s after-school art program designed and painted a piano, which spent the summer in NYC’s Astor Place Plaza as a functional, accessible artwork for the streets and communities of our city.

Artist, curator, and director of New York City’s Percent for Art Program, Kendal Henry, will discuss the contemporary role of monuments in public spaces, and his work with local communities and She Built to develop 18 new monuments representing women.

Photographer Stacy Arezou Mehrfar’s emotionally rich portraits of demonstrators at marches across New York City after the 2016 election, will be displayed in backlit lightboxes throughout the theater lobby. An excerpt of her large-scale video installation, A Collective Performance will be screened at the start of the evening.
Media personality Valerie Smaldone moderates.

Steuben Parade takes off from Fifth Avenue and 78th Street

Believe it or not this happens to be one of New Yorkled’s favorite parades. Every year when we get a chance we sneak on up to the steps in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Prime Viewing! Oh no! I gave it away. Nonetheless, you should show up for this parade and get a glimpse of all the costumes, dancing, marching and music.

Steuben, Friedrich Wilhelm Ludolf Gerhard Augustin, Baron von (1730-94), Prussian-American general of the American revolutionary army, born in Magdeburg, Prussia (now Germany). He fought with distinction in the Seven Years’ War (1756-63) and arrived at Portsmouth, New Hampshire, in 1778, offering his services to Congress and to the Continental Army and its commander, George Washington. He was appointed inspector general, prepared a manual of tactics for the army, remodeled its organization, organized an efficient staff, and improved its discipline. In 1780 he sat on the court-martial of the British army officer Major John André, who was charged with espionage. In the same year he took part, as a major general, in the siege of Yorktown. After the war he received grants of land from several states, and finally Congress voted him a pension of $2400. He became an American citizen in 1783.
