BroLab Reveals New Project

Unveiling this Thursday - Humps and Bumps, a new project by BroLab!

            BroLab, which consists of five metropolitan area artists, says the project encourages people to "slow down and take in the significance of their urban surroundings."  So it's fitting that the piece resembles a giant speed bump.  And it's no coincidence that it was commissioned by the Department of Transportation’s Urban Art Program, along with the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning (JCAL).

            You can join the unveiling ceremony this Thursday from 4-6 pm in Jamaica, Queens.  The ceremony takes place on Archer Avenue at Union Hall Street.  A reception will also be held at the Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning after the ceremony.

            Humps and Bumps was recently featured in The Daily News: Congratulations to BroLab for their recognition!

Flora Choi, Art in Odd Places 2011 artist, has an upcoming exhibition at Cuchifritos Gallery and Project Space. The opening reception will be on Dec. 22 from 5 to 7 pm.  Flora's work will be on display until January 15. Flora talked to us about her work:

Daeng'gi Kimchi Factory - Dec. 22

"Daeng'gi Kimchi Factory is a performance--installation piece where I will be taking chopped off daeng'gi braids ( a traditional Korean hairstyle that was once worn by adolescent girls) for cabbage, and make my own special version of kimchi. This piece confronts the male-dominated traditions of the past and investigates the state of women in Korea today. This piece will be accompanied by several live performances"

Performance Dates are as follows:
                                                  Dec 22- 5-7pm,
                                                  Dec. 30 3-4pm,

There are currently open volunteer positions to join the Art in Odd Places team.


Art in Odd Places (AiOP) presents visual and performance art in unexpected public spaces. AiOP also produces an annual festival along 14th Street in Manhattan, NYC from Avenue C to the Hudson River each October. Art in Odd Places' mission is to stretch the boundaries of communication in the public realm by presenting artworks in all disciplines outside the confines of traditional public space regulations. AiOP reminds us that public spaces function as the epicenter for diverse social interactions and the unfettered exchange of ideas.

We are seeking a dynamic and creative social media coordinator who can assist our PR strategy and further our branding within the NYC arts community. Ideal candidates must have a strong interest in arts and/or public art; have flexibility and the initiative to work both independently and as part of a team, have demonstrated familiarity across different social media platforms and possess excellent communication and writing skills. This opportunity will allow you the freedom to create/implement strategies and establish digital relationships to boost the organization's online presence. Check out our past festivals and press at

AiOP is a grassroots organization with no office so candidate must be prepared to work from home and have computer/cell phone availability. Ideal candidate must commit until the end of the AiOP festival in mid October 2012.
