Yet we do have 2 new aces up our sleeves:
This year we are spreading our wings across the country and internationally while deepening our roots at home.
Hell’s Kitchen Artists Guild’s smoldering arts & culture magazine At the Edge has been selling nicely in more than 500 chain & independent bookstores and newsstands across The States and Canada, & our 3rd massive new Collector’s Edition will PREMIERE at the festival! The next week in major chains Books-A-Million, Hudson News & Barnes & Noble: + a special promotion in 180 NEW B & Ns! Soon offered online via multifarious online apps & platforms, featuring dozens of contributors taking part in our festival! Many accomplished layout artists create an outrageous yet refined style; well over 100 artists + in depth profiles, literature, poetry and high idea(l)s – catering to art lovers and the general public. Showcasing career guidance for artists & arts education, altruism, spirituality, ground breaking and esteemed institutions such as the Morgan Museum – all tied together with a stunningly “cutting edge” sharp yet Technicolor dreamy, surreal, sophisticated & visionary design.
For a limited time past issues are available in FULL for free online alongside numerous press features on the homepage ofArtistsintheKitchen.org.
At the local, heart of NYC level, as a grassroots movement we are also bolstering our commitment and involvement with the Hell’s Kitchen community in a fulfilling collaboration with legendary 60 building strong Clinton Housing, creatively involving their members while holding special events + revitalizing their low-income buildings with vivacious artworks and inspiring stylistic touches.
Now, hearing this, you’d think we’ve changed, matured, mellowed, settled down…you’re kidding, right?
We reserve our right of high minded artisanal rollicking & even Rock ‘n Roll-licking revelry! 😉
Three rambunctious parties over 3 nights featuring eclectic music & bands galore, drama, comedy, readings, performance art, body art. Friday is our Grand Opening Night Gala, explore several floors & our constant shows at the modern multi-level theaters, bars & cooking of elegantly macabre “Times Scare NY”: theme echoing a 20’s (s)crematorium channeling dark Ye Olde Times Square’s bawdy past! Jam packed with our art & a possible auction…Saturday comes early for a large glitzy fashion show by renowned designer Andres Aquino shot live via VH1 with free catered gourmet local cuisine at 39 nation strong large jewelry showroom Lucoral. Then models & all segue to deploying our all night eclectic performing talents next door at new beautiful cavernous tavern – with all possible craft beers & snacks – District Tap House! Finally Sunday, more fine free food donated from near our legendary Restaurant Row for the rough-hewn charms & beautiful stage/big back room of major musical venue Tobacco Road – again continual entertainment, art & even nude body painting! Stay tuned…
An art and entertainment overdose is a given. Now, hit us up for your share of depravity and abandon. What happens in Hell’s Kitchen stays… well, we throw in the whole Kitchen sink! We do however make allowances for discrete leaks…
