MAPS N MIMOSAS. Start off BOS 2011 with this annual event hosted by Norte Maar.
The creative team of Norte Maar will once again host the annual MAPS N MIMOSAS. Come celebrate Bushwick Open Studios with a drink and get your maps of the various studios, performances, and events related to BOS 2011!
On exhibition at Norte Maar will be: “So Happy Together: forty-five artists and their collaborative drawings.”
Over the course of nine weeks this winter, a group of artists met every Wednesday night for collaborative drawing. Organized by artist Julie Torres, these five hour sessions, framed as informal “Drink ‘n Draw” gatherings, resulted in an exciting and experimental collection of drawings, paintings, collages and cut-outs.
“So Happy Together” is an exhibition of their individual talents, their collaborative efforts, and their community spirit. A silent auction to benefit the collaborative projects of Norte Maar will continue throughout the festival. Saturday and Sunday, June 4th and June 5th, 12-7pm.
Special thanks to Hyperallergic HQ for hosting the drawing parties.
