New York City has always been cultural melting pot, welcoming individuals of various race, religion and cultural ethnicity. Despite its many iconic landmarks, it is the people, and the diverse communities, that makes this city what it is.
Seeking out local New York City artists, each was asked to create and/or submit a portrait that best represented the neighborhood that they called “home”. The artists were given free will to create the works by their medium of choice, which resulted in pieces as unique as the boroughs they represent. Through both literal and metaphorical conceptions, Borough5 celebrates the many faces that make up New York City.
Selected artists for this exhibition include John Ahearn, Devon Rodriguez, Chantal Heijnen, Marcelo Daldoce, Fiona Aboud, Raul Barquet, Michael Connors, Robert Bunkin, Isaiah King, Charity Henderson, and Gigi Chen.
