Uniting a community

Remember the almighty Jean Shin? She just finished her exhibition, Common Threads at the Smithsonian American Museum a couple of days ago. The Korean artist is well known for her community-based work; gathering as much information and materials from the community and building it into a whole different story. The concept is that the everyday material can be used to create a new life, a new piece of artwork. She usually works in large scale and for her Fall 2010 project, she needs you to participate. For those who live in or nearby the Battery Park City neighborhood (which includes Tribeca), I encourage you to donate a ceramic plate that represent you and your family. Note that you can remain anonymous if you want, but you will be seeing these in her upcoming permanent installation at the PS/IS 276 entitled Settings. For more information, go to Jean Shin's website.

This project was made possible by Percent for Art, New York. Download the donation form here.
