Over seventy applicants with more than 500 submissions wanted to become a part of an exciting group exhibition organized by New York’s Denise Bibro Fine Art, but only forty nine of them secured their name on the list of participating artists. Art From The Boros III is a true celebration of art, regardless of age, gender, medium, content, aesthetics or the borough from which it comes. This extraordinary show aims to connect the city of New York into one consciousness, which tells so many different stories, yet binds them together in a unique artistic horizon.
Talent From The Boroughs of New York City
The Art From The Boros exhibition could be described as the meeting point of different cultures, backgrounds, languages and personalities, reflecting the cosmopolitan spirit of New York in all its glory. The splendid collection of artworks, diverse in aesthetics, content and medium, represents a collective visual biography of chosen artists, all depicting their personal experiences deriving from their individual social and economic circumstances, their past, their future. These artists have been given no limits whatsoever, thus they are both emerging and established, self-taught and highly educated, interconnected by creativity and inspiration. The artists and their artworks were chosen from dedicated studio visits across the city’s boroughs, to be juxtaposed in celebration of unity in diversity.
