  • ESOPUS and Marco Maggi present “Drawing Set”

    Jefferson Market Library
    Opening soon. September 5th, 2017 - October 2nd, 2017.

    The nonprofits arts publication ESOPUS strives to break down barriers and encourage interaction between artists and the public whenever possible. For ESOPUS 24, currently on newsstands—and available at every branch of the New York Public Library thanks to the generosity of an ESOPUS donor—artist Marco Maggi created "Drawing Set," a fascinating artist’s project consisting of a sheet of tiny, customized decals designed by Maggi along with a removable blank page. He has asked readers to create artworks with the tools he’s provided and send them to the publication. He and ESOPUS will curate an exhibition of these submitted works in the Little Underground Gallery at the Jefferson Market Library that runs from September 5th to October 2nd.

    Maggi will be present for an opening reception on Tuesday, September 5th, from 6 to 8pm.
