Art At Nitehawk Park Slope ~ ArtsPSWT Exhibiting Through April 16th
March 12 @ 10:00 am - April 16 @ 10:00 pm
Park Slope Windsor Terrace Artists, also known as ArtsPSWT, has installed a group art exhibition at the Nitehawk Cinema, on view through April 16th. The show, on the Mezzanine level above the cafe features 12
artists working in various mediums. The opening reception is on March 20th from 6pm to 8pm and is open to the public.
When ArtsPSWT member Judith Hooper approached Nitehawk owner, Matthew Viragh at the 14th Street block party, she was impressed by his concern for the community and pleased with how he had worked with the block association during the restoration of the theatre. She felt he was concerned with the neighborhood
and would be receptive to the idea of having local artists exhibit in what would become their event space. She was right.
Viragh explains, “Nitehawk celebrates local filmmakers through our annual Nitehawk Shorts Festival and we pride ourselves on being a community gathering space for the neighborhoods we serve as a movie theater. Helping celebrate other mediums and local artists in our space is just an extension of our overall mission. The rotating art exhibit will not only provide a dynamic element to our space, it also provides a sense of communi- ty engagement and a cozier feeling to our large historic theater. We look forward to hosting the exhibits and developing even more ways to celebrate local artists.”
The current show, Art At Nitehawk is on view at the Nitehawk Cinema at 188 Prospect Park West through April 16th. The theatre is situated across from Prospect Park adjacent to Bartel Prichard Square which has access to the F and G train at the 15th Street/Prospect Park station.
