There are two great events in NYC this weekend.  Friday night is opening for the annual show for my MFA program at Hunter.  I won’t be participating this year as I’m tangled up with the flu, my thesis and preparing for the Center Show (save the date: May 28!), but I am extremely excited to see the work.

On Saturday night it’s the third FEAST (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics), a monthly dinner event I have been participating in here in Greenpoint, where we all pool $10-20 contributions, eat a delicious meal and vote for a project to receive a cash grant.  This time, my friend Mary Jeys is proposing her new project Brooklyn Torch, a local currency for North Brooklyn.
