“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”

Art In FLUX Harlem and Aloft Hotel launch a collaboration to promote visual artists in Harlem. On the evening of December 3, 2013 Art In FLUX presents two Harlem artists, Andre Woolery and Ruben Natal-San Miguel, in the lobby of Aloft on their dedicated art walls. Aloft has a company-wide commitment to support the local artistic community by devoting space to presenting art. Art In FLUX hopes to utilize the Aloft Harlem space to present unique and compelling exhibits that create conversation and highlight the dynamic contemporary art culture in Harlem.
This inaugural exhibit at Aloft is titled NOTHING IS COLORPROOF after a piece by Andre Woolery of the same name. “Nothing is Colorproof” is a triptych of a gun shooting a swirling rainbow of colors. “A gun represents both chaos and order. In the chaos of my thoughts and ideas, color is the organizing order. It brings clarity to a vision. If my mind were the weapon and my ideas were the bullets… then color would be the force propelling it forward” states Andre.
Both Andre and Ruben reflect on culture, race, and gender through their own mediums – paint & pushpins and photography, respectively. They each capture moments in time and exploit the use of color and light to convey a sense of hope. Ruben chronicles Harlem by photographing the people and the architecture that are the fabric of the community. Andre paints iconic images hoping to open our eyes to a new set of possibilities. Together these two artists open a window on our society and awaken our consciousness.
NOTHING IS COLORPROOF opens on December 3rd at 6:30pm.
WHAT: NOTHING IS COLORPROOF, pop-up art exhibit and sale.
WHO: Featured Artists: Andre Woolery and Ruben Natal-San Miguel.
WHEN: December 3, 2013 through January 31, 2014, Open Daily.
WHERE: Aloft Harlem Hotel, 2296 Frederick Douglass Blvd. at 124th St, Harlem, NYC.
OPENING RECEPTION: December 3, 6:30 to 9:30pm sponsored by The 5 & Diamond Harlem and Papi Wines.
RSVP: 646-340-3479 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Summer Streets is an annual celebration in New York City for people to get out and enjoy our most valuable public space… our streets! For three consecutive Saturdays, August 3, 10 and 17, nearly seven miles of New York City’s streets are opened up for everyone to play, walk, run and bike.
This year two things in particular that stand out “Voice Tunnel” by Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and “CoolStop” by Chat Travieso. Voice Tunnel will be a seven-block-long art installation of lights and sound in the Park Avenue Tunnel open for the first time to pedestrians in history during Summer Streets. The seven-block-long tunnel, running from 33rd Street to 40th Street, which originally carried rail cars when it opened in 1834, will become the basis for a temporary, participatory art installation. See more Here. Cool Stop is a prototype for a water mister that connects to fire hydrants and provides a safe, efficient and fun alternative to cool off by a hydrant. Constructed mostly of recycled PVC piping, the 10′ installation resembles a large splash that Summer Streets participants may stand under for a small reprieve from the hot summer sun.
Summer Streets is modeled on other events from around the world including Ciclovía in Bogotá, Colombia and the Paris Plage. The event is part bike tour, part walking tour, part block party–a great time for exercise, people watching, or just enjoying summer mornings.
Running from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm, Summer Streets extends from the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park. All activities at Summer Streets are free of charge, and designed for people of all ages and ability levels to share the streets respectfully. On three consecutive Saturdays in the summer, nearly seven miles of NYC’s streets are opened for people to play, walk, bike, and breathe. Summer Streets provides space for healthy recreation and encourages New Yorkers to use more sustainable forms of transportation. In 2012, more than 250,000 people took advantage of the open streets.

A new exhibit coming soon at ART IN FLUX.
EXPRESSIONS, a mini-exhibit opens at Art In FLUX Harlem on January 25, 6-9pm along with closing reception for three FLUX galleries
Expressions is an exhibition curated by and displaying the work of interns at Art in FLUX Harlem: Danniella Carter, Dykeisha Hill, Elina Stella, Erin Murphy, Jacqueline Jones, Kachine Moore, Kathy Veliz, Ken Weisensee, Marie Demple, Raven Willis, and Rebecca Alvarez. Each artist contributes an image with the central focus of expression. When joined together the images create an introduction to the vast ever-changing forms of human emotion.
Focusing on the portrait by way of painting and photography, the exhibit gives light to the variances of expression through the eye of different individuals. The artists have based their work for this exhibition on the idea of capturing and embodying human emotion. The show emphasizes the effect of expression and how it can influence someone’s initial perception of another individual. Whether it is read from a smile, eyes, pose, or through a gut feeling, expression is an innate form of communication. Through drawing, painting, collage and photography the interns collaborated to present their own lens to convey the emotional state of an individual.
“A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.” -Cezanne
Expressions January 25th thru January 27th
Opening Reception: January 25th, 6pm to 9pm
Opening Reception Events: DJ Jeremiah aka Mr. Afrobeat, Meet the Artists, Songs by Elina
Location: 1961 Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Blvd @ 118th Street, HARLEM, NYC
