NY Art Beat Team Launch Party

NYAB jumped right on. After all, what’s better than a “penthouse” or beat-up but appealing fourth floor of a former warehouse for this kind of event?

NY Art Beat somewhat postponed launch finally happened on April 26 and the NYAB team promptly celebrated it with a small party a day after. The NYAB event editors, who had spontaneously helped creating the database of over 800 venues and nearly 1000 events and the writers who contributed their first blog entries finally got out, away from their monitors and gathered meeting many others behind the project.

The party took place in an industrial building- turned artist studios called IS1 Studios in Long Island City, Queens, one stop away, past the East River, from the Grand Central. One of the artist working there offered her studio for the get-together. NYAB jumped right on. After all, what’s better than a “penthouse” or beat-up but appealing fourth floor of a former warehouse for this kind of event?
