FLOW.13: FREE Grand Opening Event - Art Along the Randall's Island ShorelinePosted 12 Jun, 2013
The Randall's Island Park Alliance, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, and Made Event are pleased to present FLOW, annual summer art exhibitions along the shoreline at Randall's Island Park in New York City. FLOW is aimed at fostering appreciation of the shoreline through artistic expression, while calling visitors to interact with and care for the Park's island environment. Each year, FLOW features five site specific projects by participants in the Bronx Museum's Artists in the Marketplacje (AIM) program for emerging artists.
This year's Grand Opening event, Saturday June 15 from 2-5pm at Randall's Island Park, is free and open to the public, and will offer a range of interactions with the pieces and with the artists. FLOW.13 features works by artists Stephanie Dodes, Alejandro Guzmán, Eto Otitigbe, Anne Percoco, and Jenifer Wightman.
Randall's Island Park is a unique and remarkable waterfront resource, located in the East River with views of the Queens, Bronx and Manhattan shorelines. New waterfront pathways run along the 4.5-mile shoreline, which includes almost 9 acres of restored salt marsh and freshwater wetlands. The Park also offers a track & field stadium, a golf center, a 20-court tennis center and dozens of new playing fields, as well as the Harlem River Event Site, home of Made Event's Electric Zoo, a three-day Labor Day weekend concert event at Randall's Island which draws local and international DJ artists and audience.
FLOW.13 - this year's third annual exhibition - will be open to the public from June-November, and will feature five new site-specific installations, all reflecting and encouraging interaction with the Park's history and environment.
FLOW is made possible through support from Made Event, proud producers of The Electric Zoo Festival, NYC's largest electronic dance music festival, held annually at Randall's Island Park.
The FLOW exhibitions express the confluence of art, music and environment at Randall's Island Park, in the midst of one of the world's greatest cities.
