Dearest New Yorkers, Having just showed up in Brooklyn little more than a week ago (via SF), I've been wonderfully overwhelmed. The one thing I'm missing is a good list of the best places to help distill (or not distill) the innumerable art events and openings popping off both nearby and in Manhattan. Any advices and favorite digital spots are hugely appreciated. I've got a few things I'm looking at but the more, the better. Bonus points for physical publications! <3 Matthew
I have a plan to visit NYC with my best friend next weekend. I've been to NYC about six or seven times now, and I have a few things in mind. Can you help me find some other cool things to do based on what I'm already thinking about checking out? [more inside]
How hard will it be for me to find work in New York City in an Art Direction role with a boutique design firm or major news-media organization? (Looking for a fresh 2012 / Canadian to NYC / Design approach, if possible) [more inside]
I'm renting a space which I will be subletting out to other people as artist studios. I would like to get liability insurance on the space that covers damage to the space and personal injury. I'm having a hard time figuring out exactly what I need. Does anyone have any experience with this type of thing? [more inside]
What should I see/eat/do in New York City this week? [more inside]
Seeking NYC print shop recommendations for nearly one-off prints. I have about 20 pieces of different, mostly standard sizes -- nothing larger than 11 x 17 and B4 -- that I'd like to make a very limited number color prints of (1 - 3 each). I have an approximate budget of 10 dollars per print I'd like to hew closely to and a number of quality and care requirements. [more inside]
I need an affordable framing place in NYC/Brooklyn! [more inside]
I want to generate a list of visual artists working in NYC. Just the ones with established, active careers and gallery representation -- this is so I can get a new internship. I'm especially interested in artists in their 30s and 40s.
I would like to start doing some messy art: oil painting and maybe some metal sculpture. But my NYC apartment doesn't have any space for this. I was wondering if there are any studios in New York City (or Brooklyn) that one can rent (or share) by the hour. I won't be using it enough to rent the space for long periods. I might use it once a week. I might go a month without using it. The perfect place for me would be reasonably priced and stocked with basic equipment, i.e. easles. If there isn't a place like this, someone should start one. Not a bad business model for luring wanabe artists.
