Presented in partnership with Photoville Festival, A Time to Laugh, A Time to Dance is an exhibition which celebrates the joy and rebirth that comes with spring, particularly after a long, dark, overwhelming winter.
The exhibition give aims to give the viewer the visual gift of senses reawakened, and features five artists, bursting with new life, vibrant energy, and hope undimmed. They are united in their playful mixing of mediums, their bold use of color, and their call to believe that magic is still all around us.
Wherever you start viewing the work, make sure to walk around the full outdoor gallery at Manhattan West Plaza, so that you experience the joy of each artist’s work.
Spend a moment in the technicolor fantasy world of Adrien Broom, visit with the feathered aristocrats of Claire Rosen’s drawing rooms, boldly bust boundaries with Nichole Washington, float with the artificial flocks of Thomas Jackson, and bear witness to the colorful coifs and blessings of prosperity of Jaimee Todd’s portraits.
Each year, for the month of June, Photoville Festival features public art exhibitions across all five boroughs of NYC. The Festival also includes artist-led walking tours, workshops, and opportunities for educators and students to connect with the Festival’s featured visual storytellers.
