Frank_LondonJoin the latest craze in the art world and experience a creative twist on your evening with Art Kibbutz NYC. Create your own art, have a drink and get inspired by Hasidic New Wave – led by Greg Wall (Ayn Sof Arkestra, 6th Street Shul) and grammy-winning trumpeter Frank London (Klezmatics). This event will be a social occasion as well as an opportunity for artists and art lovers to create sketches and practice drawing. The musicians will serve as models. Participants are invited to portray the musicians artistic exchange in their sketches, or be inspired by their music.

Yona Verwer (Jewish Art Salon) will curate a pop-up exhibition from your best creations. Bring your own drawing board and art supplies – business cards or postcards to trade! All ages are welcome – you don’t have to be an artist to participate if you just wish to enjoy the music and drinks. Curated by Eszter Margit and Yona Verwer.
