About your host Audrey
I am an award winning, life-long photographer (received my first camera at age 4) and a huge history nerd. I moved back to NYC in 1995 and have been exploring the streets since. 10 years ago I began to notice more and more art making its way into my photos and I started to get to know and make friends with many of the artists who work on the streets of NYC. Favorite hobby? Watching paint dry.
What we'll do
From the grand cast-iron maidens in SoHo to the tenements of the Lower East Side, from the bustling streets of Chinatown to the delicious tasty treats found in Little Italy we will dive into the histories and personalities that make these some of the most important neighborhoods in the world. Along the way we will see murals created for The L.I.S.A. Project by internationally-famous street artists and learn about the process and stories behind each piece. Who knows, we might even get lucky and catch an artist at work... Colder weather and even rain won't stop us! We cover a lot of ground so check your forecast and dress comfortably. :)
Who can come
Guests ages 8 and up can attend.
Where we'll be
From Mulberry Street to Lafayette Street and beyond, we will be in SoHo, the Lower East Side, Little Italy and Chinatown in Lower Manhattan.
