Elastic City, a non-profit arts organization that presents participatory walks by artists throughout and outside of New York and they’re having one of these “walks” next Thursday. Roz Chast who works as a cartoonist for The New Yorker will be there making live drawings. The event will feature heralded sound artist Maria Chavez on the turntables, sensory-based walks throughout the venue by Elastic City artists, lighting designed by Jon Torres and a special take-away from designer Riley Hooker. Throughout the evening expert bartenders from Brooklyn’s Clover Club, JakeWalk and Death & Company will call upon attendees’ collective senses of taste and smell to devise a signature Elastic City cocktail. There will be an open bar, a variety of hors d’oeuvres and desserts from local restaurants, a raffle and a silent auction. Below are a few important event details:
