PRESS RELEASE:

We would like to announce our official relaunch with an exciting new project we are working on together.

We recently had the opportunity to apply for the MTA's call for artists for Harlem's Mother Clara Hale Bus Depot rebuilding venture. This project inspired an exciting new direction for our studio that incorporates our passion for art and also for social change and community involvement. We are interested in how art can be used to inspire a change in how a particular issue- whether social, environmental, or political--is viewed and talked about. We are looking for that moment in creating our art when one idea or perception can shift to another, starting a conversation and the potential for real, positive change.

Our studio has been in a frenzy of painting, drawing, and experimenting the last few weeks and we are pleased to show you the initial results: a mural, stamps, posters, storyboards, and textiles which grew out of our MTA submission. And there is more to come!
