Saturday, August 8th, from 6-10 PM, Lucky Gallery will be hosting an opening party for the exhibition, “Honey I Shrunk Red Hook”, a public art project and installation by Luis Blackaller and Andy Cavatorta.
Blackaller and Cavatorta will create a cardboard model of the streets surrounding Lucky Gallery, and build a collection of photorealistic dolls representing Red Hook dwellers.
Visitors to the Lucky Gallery will be encouraged to play with the dolls and have the option to have their own doll made. The familiar sites and people everybody knows will be the one’s in the imagination, giving visitors the chance to meet (or even be!) the familiar strangers all around them.
So come on down to the Little Red Hook inside the Big Red Hook and help bring it to life, re-arrange it, tag it up, and fill it with surprises. Bring friends and objects, dreams and fears, and stories only you can tell.
