“I Am…” Art Show @ The Living Gallery
Jul 25 @ 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm

Summer Art Series: “I am…”

We are proud to invite you to attend our 3rd Annual Art Show, titled: “I am…”, where we will showcase the artwork produced by our talented artists within our Day Habilitation Program.  This year we are hosting the event off-site at The Living Gallery, a local space located in Bushwick Brooklyn.  The gallery is located at 1094 Broadway Brooklyn NY 11221.

Our titular series, “I am…” explores identity, self-discovery, unexpected potential, and expression through evocative self-portraiture.  The viewer is invited to actively delve deeply into our ideals and dreams; granting a window into each of our own unique perspectives.  Over a period of several weeks, each artist investigated complex themes of identity, while comparing our similarities, our differences, and our place within the world.

Our evening Reception, open to the general public and free of charge, will take place on July 25th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.  Light refreshments, snacks, and music will accompany the show.  The space is located nearby major transportation (J, M, 4, B38, B47, and B54).

City Access New York is a non-for-profit organization serving young adults of all abilities within the five boroughs of NYC.  We identify barriers to participation in schools and in the community; adapting content and program delivery to meet the diverse needs of people with disabilities.  For additional information about our program contact the Director of Program Services Ryan Dillon (rdillon@cityaccessny.org); phone # (718) 285-6548.  For information regarding the art show please contact the show curator Kylene Cortorreal at Kylene.cortorreal@gmail.com.
