Participating in CurateNYC at Rush Arts Gallery in Chelsea

Hello there,

I'm pleased to share with you my experience with CurateNYC. My brain painting "Don't You Remember" was among the 150 winning artworks out of over 1,500+ submissions. The postcard of the painting is on display at Rush Arts Gallery (526 W. 26th street Suite 311) in Chelsea. View my submission profile here on the CurateNYC website.

Haven't heard of CurateNYC? Well it's a program supported by New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) and Full Spectrum Experience, Inc. run by Brian Tate and Danny Simmons. 

Submissions were for NYC residents only and we were only allow to submit one piece of artwork. It was thanks to twitter that I learned about the opportunity...and impending deadline. So the on the last day of submissions, I completed by application and chose to include my painting on the brain and memory "Don't You Remember". About two weeks later, I received an email saying my piece was chosen for the group show.
