So proud of our youth—creating and displaying takes courage! Check out the piece written by @windycitytimes about the collaborative work with @weareohos + @monarch_thriftshop + @cornerchicago ..... [link in bio] “These often ignored or discarded materials can create a piece of art that people will stop to look at and react on, according to Mireya Fouche...That is what the angel represents—the beauty within the broken or tarnished parts of someone or an issue—according to Fouche.”
In True Form window displays can be seen tonight through December 31st.

#NowonView at the #West10thWindow | Ryan Frank: Unoccupied!
#RyanFrank's Unoccupied considers the physical space of the West 10th Window, the building in which it exists, the surrounding neighborhood, and conditions of inhabitation in Manhattan. Creating a light box in the #w10w, Frank presents two back-lit #photographs arranged perpendicularly on the two window fronts of the space. The image depicts the #GrottedeSarrazine in #France, a site made famous by #GustaveCourbet's painting of the same name. The figure in the foreground is life-size and serves as an anonymous presence in the space, putting figure, ground, and viewer into confrontation with one another, almost forcing passersby to consider their own body in relation to the still image. With a persistent and ever-growing affordable housing crisis haunting Manhattan and its environs, the question of space and its value has never been more exigent. The neighborhood in which the project is embedded - the #WestVillage - is one of the most sought-after in the world, and yet is plagued by vacancy: empty store fronts, unoccupied homes, and disused spaces are, ironically, the result of the very desire that characterizes the area. Unoccupied considers how these spaces are allocated, what purpose they serve, who they invite and reject, and how access is determined.

When @modelcitizensalon asked me to do their windows for the holidays, I was SO EXCITED. I’ve been wanting to put wings somewhere for awhile! I embellished the wings with snow flakes for a snow angel winter look. (Though the weather is absolutely gorgeous and sunny today ✨) Thanks @elizabethbenay for giving me the artistic freedom to glam your windows.
And couldn’t have done this as easily without @christen_britt lending a hand; thanks girl! Take a pic and show off your wings like the #modelcitizenangel that you are. #athensga
This year I was asked to draw some fun Christmas designs on the windows for @roxiedaisyxo which ended up being a really fun project that added a little bit of magic to the shop ✨ If you’re in Charlottesville you should definitely go see it, but don’t forget to go inside when you do! So many beautiful things to be found 🎄
