NYCC + Re:Form School

Oh this weekend, what an overbooked morass you’ve turned into! I’m taking part in, I kid you not, four different projects in the span of two days, three of which I can speak about. Read on and shudder!

Project #2: Exhibiting art at Re:Form School

RE:FORM SCHOOL is a high profile group art exhibition, event series and public awareness campaign taking place in New York City, that brings together the creative community in a call for the reform of the American Public Education System.
We believe that it is the right of each and every child in the United States to have access to a high quality education.

RE:FORM SCHOOL will be open to the public, Saturday, October 9th, 2010 through Monday, October 11th, 2010 between the hours of 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM and is located at 233 Mott Street, New York City, NY 10012.

Re:Form School is a particularly meaningful project to me because, during school, as was the archetypical “Child who did not thrive,” and art classes were my solace.  Public education is utterly unequipped to deal with creative “weird kids,” and the buzz and classes Re:Form school is bringing about are solid good things.
