BEYOND THE BOOKCASE
On April 17th Why Empire is hosting an artists reception from 7pm-9pm at the Mondrian SoHo Hotel for “Beyond The Bookcase”. The “Beyond The Bookcase” series provides up-and-coming artists with a platform to share their work in the cultural epicenter of downtown Manhattan. The Mondrian’s gallery space will host original never-before-seen works by one of RISD’s most talented visual artists, Sierra Barela. The NY-based collective, Why Empire (WE), is curating the series for the month of April, and hosting the reception.
Why Empire is a new arts collective designed to bring high quality content from the artists to the people of Generation Y. In addition, WE is hosting free live music showcases in the Mondrian’s gallery on the first three Fridays of the month from 10:00 pm- 12:00 am. Come see the art, meet Ms. Barela and help Why Empire kickoff the month with a crowd. All original works will be available for purchase.
