Rooster Wall

ELEMENT TREE / ART PRIMO Present: “For The City By The City” from SERRINGE on Vimeo.

Heres a new wall we just finished for a project titled “For The City By The City” In downtown Jersey City as part of the artist studio tour. The building is a landmark of sorts to Jersey City being that the neighborhood housed many Puerto Rican families. This specific structure is a Puerto Rican social club that has been in place for 30 years, as a tribute to the owner and his heritage we painted a fighting rooster symbolic of the struggle of Puerto Rican immigrants making a life in the United States. It symbolizes the fight to survive as an individual and a race.

We are pleased to announce Young New York: A Silent Art Auction & Fundraiser.  This one night event will benefit Young New York (YNY), an art focused social justice program working with 16 and 17 year olds who, legally classified as adults, have been thrown into New York State’s adult criminal justice system.

With space provided by White Box, food provided by Maimonide of Brooklyn, and drinks provided by Bomb Lager, the funds from the silent auction will help build the first stage of the program – a series of creative workshops with fifteen young New Yorkers. The young New Yorkers will work closely with a team of successful artists, designers, teachers and social workers to responsibly and creatively develop their message around their own experiences with, and hopes for, the treatment of youth in the criminal justice system.

YNY will auction and exhibit the works of emerging and established international artists whose work touches on the realm of the social in urban space, thereby creating a dialogue with the work being developed in the YNY workshops.

Young New York is supported by the Goodman Fellowship at Columbia University and Brooklyn Defender Services.
