Eutopia: Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden

EUTOPIA

Curated experiences throughout the Main Hall (Building C), the Hyphen over Shinbone Alley, the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (Building G) and the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden

June 11 – September 11 2016
Wednesday-Sunday 10AM-5PM $5 Admission
“Eutopia”, derived from the Greek εὖ (‘good’ or ‘well’) and τόπος (‘place’), describes a society with qualities considerably better than ours.

εὖτόπος is the first group show by the artists of the 9th Street Phenomenon, a creative management group established in 2015 by The Vanderbilt Republic.

This large-scale, site-responsive exhibition connects artwork and installations by Sabrina Barrios, Sarah E. Brook, Charles Heppner, Carlton Scott Sturgill, TAXIPLASM, TJ Volonis & Dale Williams to the storied past and bucolic present of Staten Island’s historic Snug Harbor — creating a space to present the energy and form of dreams made real.

Curation, lighting & technical design by George Del Barrio.
