Works Cited :: Opening Night

This past Friday, April 11, we celebrated our third time curating a group show at myplasticheart in NYC. In our curatorial efforts there, we've explored the reoccurrence of bears in artists' work in Rabid, Wild, and Docile, cartoon characters in Hanna-Barbarians, and this time we've asked artists to revisit their favorite literature as children in Works Cited. As always, it is a pleasure to work with this gallery. Every year, we pinch ourselves when artists agree to participate, and this opportunity has led to us meeting some wonderful and talented people in the art community.

Thanks so much to everyone who made this possible and all of those who showed their support by attending the opening! The show runs until May 11, so if you missed the opening or can't stop thinking about one of the pieces you saw opening night, then make sure to pop in before it comes down (210 Forsyth St). For those of you not in NY, work will also be available soon in the myplasticheart online shop.

In conjunction with the show, we are running a book drive for the Books For Kids Foundation. The gallery is accepting new, hardcover children's books for children ages 0 - 6. For each book donated, myplasticheart will offer the donator 10% off his/her next purchase in store on day of donation. Acceptable donations are brand new, hardcover books appropriate for children ages 0 – 6. For more book guidelines, please contact myplasticheart at (646) 290-6866. Book donations accepted until May 31.

And now we'll stop our yapping, and you can enjoy some visuals.
