Culture Lounge Opening Weekend

June 7, 2014 @ 12:00 pm - June 8, 2014 @ 5:00 pm

Saturday June 7 – Sunday June 8
12pm – 5pm
Culture Lounge; St. George Ferry Terminal, Staten Island, NY 10301
 
Please join us for the opening weekend of Culture Lounge!
 
Culture Lounge is Staten Island Arts’ new creative space in the St. George Ferry Terminal that includes a local artist retail space to be known as the Culture Lounge Artist Market.
 
If you are curious about the space just up the steps and ramp from the parking lots and Staten Island Yankees that seems to be on the verge of something, join us on June 7 when the public can join members of the Staten Island Arts community as they celebrate art and reveal new gallery space, that initially will feature artist Tattfoo Tan. In the Culture Lounge, Tan will present his long-term project, Sustainable. Organic. Stewardship. (S.O.S.), which is a call to action. Realizing the ecological problems we face, this exhibit encourages visitors to learn as much green knowledge as they can, set out to be an example, and be the catalyst of positive change.

Visitors can also shop at the Culture Lounge Artist Market, which will sell a well-curated selection of art and craft works made by local artists and designers. Many works are one-of-a-kind or limited editions. Products include functional works for home, fashion & jewelry, and unique and beautiful art, paper goods & decorative objects that reflect the spirit of New York Harbor and Staten Island.

Correlating programming includes:

Opening Day
Date: Saturday, June 7
Time: Noon to 5 p.m.
In support of Art by the Ferry, visitors can stop in to see the space, enjoy and interact with Tattfoo Tan’s S.O.S. exhibit, shop the Culture Lounge Artist Market and enjoy community-based musicians, such as Mountain Dulcimer player and native Staten Islander, Harry Oppenheimer.

Family Day
Date: Sunday, June 8
Time: Noon to 5 p.m.
The Staten Island Arts new ferry terminal location will host a Family Day with special activities and workshops for families. Come meet your neighborhood chicken flock and S.O.S. artist Tattfoo at 12pm. This chicken collective eats organic kitchen waste, lays eggs and their waste is prized by the artist as nutritional natural fertilizer for his garden. Come and learn how you can start your own flock and build your dream coop.

Legend Business Award Ceremony
Date: Sunday, June 8
Time: 3 to 5pm
Join us for a ceremony and exhibition of the Legend Business Awards. The Legend Business Group Award will be awarded to five Staten Island students for their artistic excellence at the event. The First-Place grand prize is a grant of $1000. The Legend Award for High School Artists is open to Staten Island students in grades 9-12 who work in painting, drawing, sculpture, or installation. The award was conceived and underwritten by Mark and Sharon Voto, of Legend Business Group, as a way to recognize the talents of local young visual artists, and give them the financial support to help them achieve their goals.
