i heART NEW YORK: Friday is ART hopping

FRIDAY is going to be more than one could handle in a night, but I am going to try to visit all 3 events below here...I don't get out these days very often (been feverishly working on some new pieces for my solo show in December), so I've gotta get some multi-sensory stimulation in for the whole week. So it turns out that there are two art shows I want to see on Friday, and they happen to be 3 blocks away from each other (see map below)...whew.
Come check out this dope show where art meets politricks, organized by the Hustlenomics crew... I will have a few new previously unseen pieces in this show, and I am glad I had the opportunity to get some of my political thoughts out there on the canvas. Big shout out to the Hustlenomics crew for including me in this. Check photos from previous events on their website.

The 5th Annual Hustlenomics
Friday, November 14th 2008

"Politricks"

@ M1-5 52 Walker st. (A, C, E, N,Q, R to Canal St) in Money Takin Manhattan

Description:

The 5th Annual Hustlenomics event is being held on Friday, November 14, 2008. This year, the team invited a diverse range of artists to create and present art pieces encompassing the theme "Politricks". The artists will display their personal perspective on American or global politics. Since this year's event falls after the elections (in hopes that OBAMA is elected our President), it won't strictly be focused on the 2008 campaign. We've asked each artist to step outside the box and produce pieces that express how important and powerful politics has been throughout the turn of the century. These pieces will represent the impacts of politics and how its affected people of different race, demographics, economics, language and gender. Hustlenomics team is working hard to make this year's event really special!
