High Bridge: Rebirth of the Harlem River, a group exhibition in which I was a part, concluded yesterday with an artist panel discussion. Yesterday’s final day coincided with the High Bridge Festival, a public celebration of the recent reopening of the High Bridge.
The turnout was small for our panel discussion yesterday, which was in sharp contrast to our exhibition reception the week earlier in which about 70 people attended. Even the Deputy Commissioner of NYC Parks stopped by and posed with Wes, Nathan, and me.
The response to our exhibit has been very positive. Everyone has seemed impressed and happy. Throughout this journey, we made wonderful contacts at NYC Parks and elsewhere which are, of course, invaluable. We were even featured in a small piece by BBC World Service, which was broadcast on NPR this past Friday, July 24th.
Now that it’s over, we’re looking for new venue where we can possibly continue our exhibit if not in total than maybe in part.
