Dear Kingsborough community,

Today the Kingsborough Art Museum focuses on Malvin Gray Johnson (1896-1934) a largely unsung early 19th century painter, in our series for Black History Month, 28 Greats: A Celebration of African-American Art and Artists.

The series is also being posted daily on the KAM website at https://kccartmuseum.org/28-greats
In celebration of Black History Month, the CUNY Kingsborough Art Museum (KAM) Kingsborough Art Museum launches the first of 28 short daily profiles on African-American artists entitled 28 Greats. Nineteenth-century landscape painter Robert S. Duncanson is the first honoree (attached). We hope you enjoy this series.

KAM is also preparing for its upcoming spring (virtual) exhibition, The American Eye: Vernacular Photography in the United States from the Brownie Camera to Instagram. On view beginning March 10, this exhibition will present some 300 snapshot photographs from 1890 to the present that focus (pun intended) on the aesthetic qualities of this underappreciated form of photography. A number of virtual programs are currently being planned in conjunction with the exhibition.
Your page if filled with beautiful art. With many museums having been closed during corona virus, I have been looking for ways to stay involved in the art community and have been doing so through film. I’ve recently taken a liking to photo realist artwork. While in quarantine, I came across a streaming platform called Film Festival Flix. This platform offers a bunch of films and film collections that can be streamed from home, and it is hosting virtual film festivals. I was able to watch a documentary called “Queen of Heart: Audrey Flack”. It told the amazing story about the life of photo realist artist and feminist Audrey Flack. Film Festival Flix offers a bunch of similar artistic films that can be streamed anytime. I believe Film Festival Flix is a great place to expand your appreciation of art.

MoSA: The Museum of Sticker Art [in-person]

MoSA: The Museum of Sticker Art is an installation project conceived and curated by Tommy Mintz. The piece stretches over three walls of KAM--some 108 feet--and is comprised of hundreds of stickers painstakingly removed from NYC streets and carefully catalogued as to their former location on streetlamps, walls, mailboxes, and various public spaces. Like graffiti artists, contemporary sticker artists often use their medium to convey political and social messages; other times they are lampooning cultural figures or timeworn ideas of modernity and urban life. Through this unique installation, Mintz celebrates these street artists by presenting them in a gallery context, while simultaneously creating his own larger, more meta, artwork that addresses issues of authorship, the dichotomy between street art and fine art, and the tropes of art history and museum curation, cataloguing, and presentation. For more information, please visit https://kccartmuseum.org/tommy-mintz%3A-mosa.

On View November 9 through November 24, 2021

Note: Current visiting hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10 am - 3 pm. CUNY COVID-19 protocols in place (face coverings and social distancing).

Reflections: The Annual Art Faculty Exhibition [Virtual]

This time-honored exhibition celebrates the accomplished artistic and professional endeavors of Kingsborough's Art History, Fine Arts, and Graphic Design & Illustration faculty and staff. While the pandemic made an in-person version of the show problematic, to say the least, the virtual format allowed each faculty and staff member to contribute more than one work, and to add an Artist's Statement and links to their artist websites and faculty bio pages.

The Kingsborough Art Museum (KAM) is pleased to announce that this year's Rarebit Animation Festival will be taking place virtually this Thursday evening, June 17, at 7:00 pm. Curated by Kingsborough Animation professor Tom Eaton, the annual Rarebit Festival showcases short animated films created by students from Kingsborough and across CUNY. The name of the festival is a nod to the cartoonist and animator Winsor McCay, a former resident of Sheepshead Bay and creator of the imaginative comic strips Dream of the Rarebit Fiend and Little Nemo in Slumberland.

Advanced registration is required:
https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZAsce6hqTsjHNa4AvqnlYGkaqT7ajFpwXuO

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
