My series "Twelve dox-ZENs" will be on view. This time they will be for sale individually ($400 each) or together ($2400). I'll have another post on this soon.
The show is part of the Compassion Arts & Culture and Animals Festival, a weekend-long celebration of song, artistry, discussion, film, and performances reflecting our multifaceted relationships with animals and the earth we share.
The festival is presented by two prestigious entities: Culture & Animals Foundation, a non-profit committed to supporting artists and scholars in advancing our understanding of and commitment to animals, and Compassion Arts, a creative arts and education initiative dedicated to expanding the way we see animals, nature, each other, and ourselves.
In addition to the exhibition, curator Jane O'Hara will perform a multi-media reflection on "Beasts of Burden" featuring song, video, spoken word and art in collaboration with singer-songwriter Joy Askew and poet Gretchen Primack, Saturday night at 7:30 pm at Symphony Space, 2537 Broadway, NY, NY.
Tickets for the performance are $20 each or $25 day of show ($10 for children and students). Click here to order yours.
