On September 8 & 9, The NARS Foundation is teaming up with the Brooklyn Museum’s GO Project, a
community-curated open studio weekend event taking place in neighborhoods throughout Brooklyn. There are over 50 artist studios to visit at NARS! Explore Sunset Park and come check out one of Brooklyn’s most vibrant art scenes. Community members registered as voters can visit the NARS Studios and help decide who will be part of a group exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in early December. For more information and learn how you can vote for your favorite artist, please visit: http://www.gobrooklynart.org.
On Saturday, September 8th from 2- 4 PM, in conjunction with the Go Project and our newest
exhibition Interpreting Rituals: The Butterfly Effect, an exploration into the notion of sacredness in
contemporary society, the NARS Foundation will offer an afternoon of community public programming. Join Ed Lin, Anelise Chen and Rahna Reiko Rizzuto of the Asian American Writers Workshop as they each present their readings and reflections on sacredness and spirituality. We will also host a performance by spoken word artists from Buendia, a local grassroots Sunset Park artist collective. Throughout the afternoon, a Clay Workshop for children and families will be offered by NARS studio artist Maria Hupfield, along with a chance to enjoy tea from a set of ceramic vessels created by exhibiting artist Ming Yuen-Schat.
