Navigating Crises Large + Small: Who’s There To Help?
August 2, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Brooklyn-based artists and CERF+ Beneficiaries Alison Ruzsa + Golnar Adili, both hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, join Reed McMillan, Vice Chair of CERF+, in a panel discussion on August 2, 2017 at 7 – 8:30pm at ArtCondo, 625 West 21st Street in NYC. The panelists will share their experiences along with recovery and resilience strategies for any artist facing challenges. This event is free!
Alison Ruzsa is a glass artist who specializes in capturing intricate worlds, moments, and objects on a small scale. She has been working at Pier Glass in Brooklyn since 1995.
Golnar Adili’s mixed media work incorporates elements of paper, photography, book work and sculpture. Much of her work is influenced by growing up in post-Iranian Revolution in Tehran and issues of displacement.
Although working in vastly different mediums, Ruzsa’s and Adili’s works both share a sense of vibrancy, an exquisite attention to detail, and most of all, fragility. In October 2012, Ruzsa and Adili also shared terrible losses when their studio spaces were each left in ruins by Hurricane Sandy.
Ruzsa and Adili will be joined by Reed McMillan, Vice Chair on the CERF+ Board of Directors. A Leader in International Architecture + Design Network at Informa Exhibitions in New York, McMillan has more than 25 years of professional experience working with artists, makers, and designers to help them to explore ways to grow their businesses. He will be on hand to talk about the mission of CERF+, as well as the funding and resources CERF+ provides to artists in times of need.
ArtCondo is a Brooklyn-based community-focused real estate initiative created to help creative professionals purchase and develop buildings throughout the NYC area, in partnership with neighborhood residents.
