Opening date is May 22nd, 6-8 pm, the exhibition is on display until the end of June.
Painting “The battle for Petrosino” by Serge Strosberg (oil and egg tempera) has been selected to be part of a 1 Month group show, at the Theaters art gallery, by curator Carolyn Radcliffe.
The theme of the show is “Corporations”. “The battle for Petrosinoi square” is a portrait of art activist Minerva Durham protesting the random placement for the citibikes at Petrosino square in SoHo on the grounds of what used to be an outdoor public space for art installations and sculptures.
Minerva Durham, a true art hero, is a celebrity in SoHo where she has been running the mythical Spring studio for more than 2 decades.
She’s been featured in many publications including the Villager and Downtown Express.
Social realism is not dead! Come to the show!
