Art Space Be.ta
The Berwyn Public Art Initiative is presenting our first pop-up art space — BE.
BE. stands for… Berwyn Explores — Experiences — Engages…. or any E word you can think off.
During the first week, local artists will create a print installation about pollinators and invite the general public to join. April 20th will be a Pre-Be. gallery show, 10:30am – 12:30pm, showcasing the work by Monstrochika and Alex Velasquez Brightbill.
Monday April 22, through Friday April 26, 6:30pm – 8:30pm, the public is welcome to visit the space to watch, interact and create prints using linoprint/monoprint techniques and contribute to the community installation. The Pop-up also allows the opportunity to showcase the retail space available for rent.
The project culminates with an open studio on Saturday, April 27, 10:30am to 2:30pm. Final prints will be available for purchase to benefit BPAI. The committee will continue to develop concepts and partnerships with local artists for the space until it is occupied by a new business. The Pop-Up Art Space committee is led by Naomi Martinez, Katie Rose, Jessica Christy and Alex Velazquez Brightbill.
