New York Cares Day

"In just one day [volunteers] painted hundreds of classrooms and hallways, organized dozens of libraries, painted hundreds of amazing murals, and much more at 117 public schools city-wide. Thanks to them, more than 88,000 children will find their schools magically transformed into wonderful, vibrant places to learn and grow."-New York Cares Website.

Below are some photos of NY Cares volunteers hard at work at PS 21 in Staten Island. Check out some of the other NY Cares photos from the day on the New York Cares blog and Facebook.

Invisible Dog / No Longer Empty

The latest installation of NO LONGER EMPTY fulfills the not-for-profit’s mission to bring art to the public in unexpected places and revitalize empty storefronts.

This incarnation is an old warehouse in Brooklyn that once housed a belt factory and the much loved novelty gag of the 70s, the INVISIBLE DOG .A group of some 19 established and emerging artists will enliven the former factory floor with inventive art works that allude and respond to both the history and present circumstances of the space. Artists will also be given the opportunity to work with the many trimmings, reels of fabric, leather and other materials excavated from the factory.
