DrawNow! Explore how drawing operates in the world today.
Join us! Draw with fellow New Yorkers at this open-air art studio presented in partnership with Street Lab/The UniProject, hosted by The Brotherhood/Sister Sol on Wednesdays September 25 and October 9 at Johnny Hartman Plaza in Harlem. Teaching Artist Ada Pilar Cruz guides drawing activities inspired by For Opacity, featuring the work of Elijah Burgher, Toyin Ojih Odutola, and Nathaniel Mary Quinn. These three contemporary artists explore identities and personal background through portraiture in a range of distinct stylistic approaches.
