ARTIST MIKE PERRY LAUNCHES WONDERING AROUND WANDERING, A POP-UP EXHIBITION AND COMMUNITY SPACE FOR LIFELONG ART-MAKING
Artist and graphic designer Mike Perry presents Wondering Around Wandering (WAW), a three-month exhibition, open community event space, and working studio in Brooklyn’s emerging Crown Heights neighborhood. From September 15 through November 25, 2012, Perry and friends will take over a 7,000 square-foot warehouse space at 983 Dean Street, with funds raised on the online crowd-funding platformKickstarter — 766 backers contributed more than $30,000. There they will host a series of free educational workshops and idea-igniting opportunities for people of all ages to tap into their own creative potential, discover or become a mentor, or just have a mind-expandingly good time. Additional support from longtime creative partner Urban Outfitters will help to keep the space open and free to the community.
