Gimme Art Irondale Celebrates Brooklyn Artistic Community with a monthly Festival
New York, N.Y. (March 08, 2009) – Gimmie Art, a brand new Brooklyn non for profit monthly art and music festival will launch April Fools Day at the historical Irondale Center. The festival is centered on celebrating and preserving original work that explores emerging themes in our society through art, music, film, live performances and new experimental media.
Gimmie Art’s first event, sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery, will consist of a book signing and viewing of original photographs by urban rap photographer and public access icon, Ricky Powell (www.rickypowell.com). Performing artists include Brown Girls Burlesque, Polaroy (www.polaroy.com) album release party, Wasabassco Burlesque (www.wasabassco.com), Jeff Newell’s New trad Octet (www.new-trad.com), and many others. The event will also give independent vendors a platform to distribute their products, build relationships within the artistic community, and meet prospective buyers.
Proceeds from the show will go to preserve the historic Irondale Center and support emerging artists. Up until it’s recent opening in October of 2008, The Irondale Center remained unused since WWII and was a major hub of freedom during the Underground Railroad, playing host to many freedom fighters such as Fredrick Douglass. Gimmie Art strives to create a platform and voice for emerging artists without a home as well as build an artistic community through exhibition of work, collaboration and networking. With the help and support of the Irondale Center we will allow the local Brooklyn art community to thrive and grow in a critical point in our history.
