Bernie Sanders crashed his own art opening in Manhattan on Saturday. The touring exhibit "The Art of a Political Revolution: Artists for Bernie Sanders 2016" featured works of art depicting the senator, his policies and his campaign. The senator has been a long time supporter of the arts starting from his days as mayor of Burlington, VT. Watch our video to learn more about the art, artists and movement behind it all.

This exhibition features four artists that work with repurposed materials. Suprina up-cycles materials into figurative pieces that address social injustices. Jeffrey Allen Price and Gabriel J. Shuldiner focus on process and transmutation of materials. Victoria investigates how fundamental changes in fabric can affect one’s perception of his or her identity, and ultimately a nation’s psyche. [Co-curated by Leanna Stella and Akeem Duncan.]

Running April 9 - May 22, 2016
On Saturday, August 1st from 9pm - midnight the Empire State Building featured 5k projection footage of endangered species.
Standing amongst hundreds of onlookers with our heads tilted upwards toward the iconic building there was a special moment shared. In between the 'oohs' and 'aahhs' brought on by the awe and beauty of the live art display there was a sadness. A sadness in the realization that these beautiful images truly represent species that are likely to become extinct. "I used to see monarch butterflies all the time as a child," expressed a lady standing next to me, "and now I don't see them anymore."
"The production was the collaborative effort of the Oceanic Preservation Society and the filmmakers of "Racing Extinction," an upcoming documentary film that highlights humanity's role in the loss of the world's endangered species. Helmed by Louie Psihoyos — the director of "The Cove" — "Racing Extinction" follows a team of activists on a mission to expose the two largest threats to biodiversity — the international wildlife trade and society's growing carbon footprint."

The Studio Museum in Harlem is one of my favorite cultural institutions in the Big Apple. With rotating exhibitions every two - three months it was a pleasure to catch the final day of an exhibit. Target sponsors Studio Museum go-ers every Sunday by offering free admission!! [p.s. my mom has a cameo in the first photo outside of the building :)]
Harlem native & OG graffiti artist James Top has a gallery in the Sugar Hill district. I recently moved to the same block and we reconnected. I first met him in 2013 when he was featured in a show at ImageNation RAW SPACE. It's dope how life has crossed our paths once again (syn·chro·nic·i·ty¿). I see him sometimes as I'm coming or going and during a recent encounter he told me about an event that he was having on June 19th. I stopped by without my camera, however with an overload of beautiful images and interesting people I felt that invisible magnetic pull. I walked the few minutes back to my apartment and grabbed my trusty Canon. *Snap Snap*
