I’ve never gone to a large-scale arts festival in NYC, but I’m going to try to this year. I’ve planned to catch a show during New York International Fringe Festival, aka FringeNYC. This two-week event, thru Aug 26, is the largest multi-arts festival in North America, with more than 200 companies from all over the world performing for 16 days in more than 20 venues.
When I moved to New York City after graduating from college in 2006, I’ll admit I was a little naive. Originally from Northeast Ohio, I think my teens were marred by premium cable. I thought my life as a journalist in NYC was going to mirror that of Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw. Party every weekend? Check.
Last night, I went to Openhouse Gallery’s Mulberry Street location for the launch of the Jose Cuervo Tradicional Mural Project—a program that aims to create a dialogue, through artistic endeavors, which will inspire artists over the age of 21 (I mean, it is being backed by a tequila company after all) to celebrate Latin culture—sharing their ambitions for the Latin community through murals.
