Fourth Arts Block has selected the artists to carry out the first ever FABLES Public Art Project. Five finalists have been chosen to unveil their visual insight, expounding on the nitty-gritty of the neighborhood. The goal is to engage and immerse the passersby in the historical legacy, cultural metamorphosis, and distinctive character of the Lower East Side – all through outdoor, illustrative storytelling.
The finalists are (drumroll, please): Lexi Bella, Tamara Gayer, Theresa Loong and Laura Nova, Levan Mindiashvili, and Miguel Trelles and Juan Fernando Morales-Nazario.
Should tie in nicely with the inaugural Lower East Side History month celebration, set to debut this May. Exhibits commence in April, with installations running through August. Chosen canvases include Ideal Glass (East 2nd St, btw Bowery & 2nd Ave), First Street Green Park (corner of 2nd Ave & Houston St), Centre-Fuge (East 1st St, near 1st Avenue), and City Lore (56 East 1st Street).
