Downtown Yonkers is so proud to add an amazing new art gallery to our community. Urban Studio Unbound (US+U) is a unique, acclaimed collective of artists – most of whom are alumni from the Fine Arts Department at the Fashion Institute of Technology. They are joining the Blue Art Center, Youth Theater Interactions, Philipse Manor Hall, the Riverfront Art Gallery, and (the upcoming) SUNY Purchase Interactive Art Space to collectively create a vibrant art district in the heart of Downtown Yonkers.
Please come to Urban Studio Unbound’s grand opening on Saturday, October 10th at 6:30PM at 66 Main St, Yonkers, NY 10701
US+U was founded in 2003 as a place for graduates to share ideas and opportunities, work together on creative endeavors and continue to be connected to a network of their peers. Our group also includes both retired & current faculty and staff. Urban Studio + Unbound creates and nourishes professional development through emphasizing participation and collaboration. Artists are engaged in a broad range of issues and topics, and are encouraged to find new and diverse venues for their work. US+U was founded on the understanding that the art world has rapidly changed from the traditional role of museums and galleries to self created venues and community based opportunities. Artists are encouraged to participate in administrative art activities as well as hands on studio projects. US+U’s strength of purpose is to combine emerging and mid-career artists in a partnership to embrace a wide range of artistic approaches.
Urban Studio Unbound will feature:
Bi-monthly world class art exhibitions
Provide weekly art instruction through a Pre-College Program
Free art workshops, including those exclusively for seniors
Will establish an Artist in Residence program (“AIR”) for an enhanced cultural/educational experience
Please also join us at the after party at Zuppa Restaurant & Lounge. For more information on Urban Studio Unbound please see: http://www.urbanstudiounbound.org
