Curate NYC had its opening for the top 150 entries, out of 1900 submissions, for the show “Imagine New York City 25 years in the Future”.  Rush Gallery was nice enough to host the event in Chelsea which was fully packed all the way until the end of the opening.

“What will the future bring?” was the question asked by Curate NYC to all the artists who submitted work. New York City has always been the hub of transformation, a bustling center of media / commerce / art / ideas, and it will always keep changing. The work ranged from photographs, collage, and painting. It was great to see many different visions of New York in the future; there were some really futuristic ideals, some with New York in ruins and under water. I personally believe that New York will still be the “KING” twenty-five years from now but you never know.

Rush Arts Gallery + Resource Center is a core program of the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded in 1995 by brothers Russell, Danny and Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons. The gallery provides exhibition opportunities to an emerging artistic community, and exposes disadvantaged urban youth to contemporary arts and culture. Rush Arts Gallery initially provided resources and support to early career, non-commercial artists of color who lacked representation in Chelsea’s art district. It now also support artists, curators and writers from around the globe, promoting experimental ventures in visual production, curatorial work, performance art and community involvement. Rush Arts Gallery invites guest curators and event producers to transform the gallery for projects, exhibitions, fashion shows or screenings.
