Saturday, June 30, 2pm: Gretchen Bennett, Windfall Alphabet, Governors Island
The Drawing Center and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council presented DrawNow!, a project of The Big Draw. Organized as part of the River to River Festival, this four-part series was presented on Governors Island on June 23–24 and June 30–July 1, 2012. Now in its seventh year in New York, The Big Draw series is a celebration of drawing inspired by the wildly popular United Kingdom program of the same name. On Governors Island, visitors of all ages explore drawing as a way to relate to their city, waterfront, and landscape, through site-specific artist-led projects.
As with other artists, such as Belgian-born, Mexico-based artist Francis Alÿs, British land artist Richard Long, and American conceptual visual artist Julia Mandle, this work emerges in the interdisciplinary space of art, place, walking, and community practice.
