Amanda Browder opening at 303 Grand

Wanna see some great sculpture right here in Brooklyn? Well, what are you doing this weekend...?

I met Amanda back in Madison, Wisconsin, while she was in the MFA program at UW Madison.

Here's a write-up about her opening:

This coming Friday, May 1st, 5pm-8pm, 303GRAND presents sculpture artist Amanda Browder, "mad scientist of scavenger art assemblage, uses hundreds of fabrics to stitch together a surreal and disorientating world in which anything seems possible." So come by, grab a drink and have a chat with the artist herself!

CALL TO ACTION: With the help from Wearable Collections, we are accepting donations of any fabric, sheets, blankets, and/or clothing (the brighter and more colorful the better) for Amanda's latest project, "House Blanket." Her goal is to get enough fabric to sew a colorful blanket that will cover and entire Greenpoint building. "After living in Greenpoint for 2 years, and feeling sick with how many apartments have that god-awful aluminum siding on them. The project will be a warm wake-up to the monochromatic droll of beige siding...ugh!" We will be collecting items starting Monday, April 27th until May 5th.

So swing by 303GRAND with some left over fabric, your moms old polyyester floral print bell bottoms, and your grannies old knitted blanket thats been in your closet for years and donate it for a great cause!

Cute, huh?

If you're unable to make the opening tomorrow, no fear- the show runs through May 10th (303GRAND is open between 12-5).

Check out Amanda's artist website for more info, or the 303GRAND site to learn more about the space.
