An End of the Year Holiday Event in NYC

beach

Hey again bloggers or whoever could be reading this blagh. Another year here on planet earth. 2022, according to that Gregorian calendar, has passed since I last signed in to post on this blog. And in between following King Jesus and his Guardians of Divinity Drag Queen Story Hour protests at New York City Public Libraries, via East Ghost Reports, NJEG Media’s videos and internet travel, and reading other gog and magog seemingly end of the world headline news of the day….. 

It was also an attempt to have a MoRUS Fly & Carla Holiday Art Market on the coldest day in New York City in three years at the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space, that radical history museum that finds itself in that City of New York, where I attempted to vend that Black Lives Matter jewelry, those Tompkins Square Park T – Shirt ‘s with Fly Orr and lots of Fly hand stamped holiday cards and more. And if I could just copy and paste that MORUS mailing list information for this holiday market and other events at morus, because hey, it’s less writing sometimes… And that Bill TIME’S UP events mailing list would read something like as follows:

Join us at a Rally to save CHARAS/El Bohio Community Center

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 17TH AT 12 NOON

605 E 9th St between Ave B and C

CHARAS has served the Lower East Side for over 20 years, providing artists space, educational programs, and meeting space for countless neighborhood organizations. For the past 21 years, a coalition of community organizations have fought to landmark the building, enforce the use restriction, and return the building to community use. The developer is now in foreclosure and it is time to return CHARAS to the community!

 pop up  show Thursday,Friday, and Saturday DEC 22,23,24 

At the Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space- 155 Ave C, , NYC.

Free / Suggested Donations strongly recommended to benefit charities helping people in Ukraine.
Seth Tobocman and Tamara Wyndham are co-curators of this International art show condemning the Russian Invasion of Ukraine. This is a travelling exhibit which was first shown in New York at the First Presbyterian Church on 12th Street and then again at the Unitarian Church of Staten Island.
This art show includes artists holding many different political and philosophical beliefs, working in different styles, from graphic novels to photo-journalism, from Fusionism to fashion design, and more abstract pieces. The artists come from many different countries including Ukraine, Russia, Italy, France, the UK, the USA, Israel, and Palestine.
The purpose of the show is to demonstrate that all over the world, people of good conscience condemn this invasion.
This art show originated with artists sending each other jpegs that were printed and shown in numerous locations around the world — so that this exhibit has had various manifestations. Versions of this exhibition have been shown so far, in Manhattan, Staten Island, Prague, Berlin, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Yerevan-Armenia, Paris-France, Easton-PA, and Miami-Arizona.

And those above event descriptions are just a few of the words that I have come across on morus’s Facebook page for their 10th Anniversary party that Bill, a co founder of morus, who is also the founder of  Time’s Up! , and volunteers, seem to single handedly put on,

And in between battling  murphy’s law and not being able to actually make it to any of these above events, and reading world news of the day , this blog post is yet another attempt to maintain web 2.0 user generated content whenever blaghers block possible.

And so I dropped off a few #tompkinssquarepark t-shirts @ Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space – MORUS . Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space! Film Festival, Anarchist Book Fair, Anarchist Film Festival and morusnyc 10 Year Anniversary Party @ nublu Sept 8th – Sept 11th, #morus #nyc #newyorkcity #alphabetcity #lowereadtside #eastvillage
