New York, NY (January 8, 2009) – If you’ve ever wondered what goes on behind closed studio doors, join us on Saturday, January 24th, for the “Yaddo Artists Open Studios Crawl” as a group of creative professionals welcome visitors to their workspaces.
Thirty Yaddo artists working in lower Manhattan and Brooklyn will open their workspaces in lower Manhattan and Brooklyn from 2-5 p.m. for this free, public event that is one of a series of programs celebrating the “Yaddo: Making American Culture,” an archival exhibition on view at The New York Public Library in New York City through February 15.
On January 24th, you will have a chance to meet and get an up close look at the private studios of the following Yaddo artists:
Peter Sumner Walton Bellamy
Lisa Corinne Davis
There is no established schedule for the “Yaddo Artists Open Studios Crawl.” Visitors decide for themselves how many studios to visit, in what order they wish to see the studios, and how long they want to stay in each spot. And to help plot an individualized course for the afternoon, we have available for download a general map with an attached list of participating artists with studio addresses (PDF), plus a more detailed interactive map where you will find representative samples of each participating artist’s work and specific directions. Note that on this map (see below), you can click on location numbers to see details and images and drag the map around to see areas not displayed.
