In celebration of Front Room’s 20th Anniversary, The Art Neighborhood is coming to Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Lisa Marie Ludwig has created a Carry-A-Long Play Set Diorama of the Williamsburg Bridge with Blank-Canvas Action Figures to be created in YOUR likeness to be donated to the diorama. The Williamsburg Bridge represents the Front Rooms journey from their location in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to their new destination, Manhattan’s Lower East Side. This is a way to bridge the communities together, getting to know our neighbors and share with one another the transformative power of art.
You can participate in creating an Action Figure of yourself. Lisa Ludwig makes figures from recycled foam and wire that she tapes and gesso to offer a “blank canvas” to ignite creativity and introspection.
