CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Hey y'all. . . Got a quick question for you . . .
When things don't go as planned and life gives you
a 'lemon'-- WHAT DO YOU DO?
Not sure if the answers is the same for everyone, but
for the crew at BROOKLYNITE GALLERY we take that
'lemon' and crush it into an art exhibition for the
most impressionable, free thinking-minds, humankind
has to offer. . . KIDS.
Announcing a call for submissions for a kids exhibition
titled, "BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY".
OPENING May 16, 11am EST.
We know a lot of you have children who love to paint and
draw. We also know that there have been many times you've
looked at their work and thought to yourself--- that's
pretty damn good! We'll now is your chance (and theirs)
to show it.
We are joining together our local Brooklyn youth and the
youth from YOUR neighborhood to showcase some great young
talent in hopes of inspiring them to continue to use
creative expression throughout their lives.
...And what better way to do that than to offer them money!
If your child happens to sell their work at the exhibition
they will get paid for it, minus a small portion that will
go to a kids charity (TBA).
AS AN ADDED BONUS:
will submit one piece of work and allow kids
to add their collaborative efforts to it---
Those pieces will be auctioned off and a portion
of the proceeds will also go to charity.
So keep the kids home from school, crack open those poster
paints, get out the crayons and force them to make a
masterpiece Mommy and Daddy can brag about! --After all,
it will be carried LIVE on BROOKLYNITE TV with a dope musical
guest to accompany the show and LIVE kids graff.
