Rich Garr – Artists at Home (with an audience)
When: 9/15/2020, 7pm
Where: on ZOOM
Meeting ID: 893 3127 3472, Passcode: 907765

Open Source is an organization that relies upon and thrives on our community. During this pandemic, we have had to re-think all of our programming–which is in-person and dialogue-focused–to find ways to move into a virtual sphere. Join the Open Source crew and local artists for art on Zoom. Almost every Tuesday at 7pm, a different local artist will host, showcasing their art.

Rich Garr is an interdisciplinary artist based in Brooklyn. Broad interests in art and cultural history surface in his work as traditional collage, walking tours, and site-specific memorials he calls “street art history plaques.” He worked as a teaching artist at the Cleveland Museum of Art and Brooklyn Museum before freelancing around New York City at places like the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, Lefferts Historic House, and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. He has always enjoyed working with kids, and for a long time taught children photography and darkroom techniques on the Lower East Side. Neighborhood photo walks with kids branched into gallery and art studio visits for adults. He now presents walks as collage art, and enjoys inspiring others to find their own creative platforms and voices.

Moderated by fellow NYC tour guide and Open Source board member Pim Zeerers.
