This new art exhibition right at the entrance of Chelsea Market celebrates both Black History Month & Women’s History Month with seven-foot-tall portraits of notable figures.
Incredible Brooklyn mixed media artist Voodo’Fe has brought his signature style and pop culture character renditions to Chelsea Market, now through the end of March!
The exhibit is completely free to visit, and represents both Black History Month (February) and Women’s History Month (March). There’s a Harriet Tubman piece made from paint and bottle caps, as well as pop culture pieces of The Notorious B.I.G., newly acquired Brooklyn Nets player James Harden and a special Kobe Bryant tribute piece. Run DMC front man Darryl “DMC” McDaniels is also featured, part of a visual collaboration with him and Voodo’ Fe on his latest project “Me and my microphone.”
There are also abstract works of Frida Kahlo and the Notorious RBG Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
“We felt like this was our opportunity to speak to many things, this exhibit pays homage to them all,” says Nyree Lewis, one of Voodo’ Fe’s partners and Producer for their gallery in Brooklyn, The Spot for Art. The Spot for Art is open Wednesday-Sunday from noon to 8 p.m. at 572 Myrtle Ave in Clinton Hill.
Check it out at 9th Ave between 15th and 16th St!
