The Orange Arts and Culture Council is sponsoring a bus trip to New York City on Tuesday, May 16 to view graffiti art. “A must see!” said Marcia Jamron, tour organizer. “What we once looked at with some admiration and thought “That’s Graffiti” is now called “Street Art”, said Jamron. “It is truly amazing what an artist can produce on streets, buildings, walls and in subways. This is an opportunity to learn different ways one can consider art. It is not all hanging in museums.”
The tour includes: 191 Street Subway Tunnel “scene”, Audubon Mural Project, murals of climate threatened birds in the John James Audubon neighborhood. Gitler & Gallery – talk with Gallery owner and street artist art scenes in the Bronx-Mott Haven – see some architectural gems in the Historic District plus a café luncheon.
Tickets are $125.00 per person. Make out checks to OACC and mail to: Marcia Jamron, 229 Karen Drive, Orange, CT 06477, (203) 795-4444.
Bus leaves promptly at 8:30am from Orange Congregational Church parking lot. Reservations are due by Tuesday, May 2, 2016.
