We have recently moved 16 of our staff members into a newly renovated, 11,000 square foot building in Historic Kingston. The building has been restored to its late 1800’s look, and the renovation is in keeping with other planned projects in Midtown, such as the renovation of the former United States Lace Curtain Factory building and the Kingston High School project.
The new office is located at 572 Broadway Kingston, NY 12401.
In 2015, we will be sponsoring ArtBridge Kingston. ArtBridge is a New York City based 501c3 non-profit, founded 7 years ago with the mission to beautify construction sites and neighborhoods that need some attention by displaying public works of art submitted by local artists, selected by a juried panel of curators, and installed for the public to enjoy. The large-scale works help to transform neighborhoods into ‘destinations’ and bring positive attention to a community and location. For 6 years, Art Bridge has successfully completed many large public installations, such as at the Barclay’s Stadium and Atlantic Yards; Chelsea, DUMBO, and Gowanus Canal. They have recently expanded to Italy and for the past two years we have successfully completed installations in Kingston, NY.
Art Bridge Kingston has used the midtown location of the Greenkill Ave Bridge and CSX bridge next to it to showcase winning art pieces submitted by local arts. The installation goes up 2-3 days before Kingston’s St. Patrick Parade and Shamrock Run. The banners are taken down after 6 months and recycled and made into tote bags by a non-profit that sells the majority of the bags to benefit a NYC women’s homeless shelter!
We are also proud to support Made In Kingston for their second annual gathering of those who are making art and manufacturing products in Kingston. Be part of this celebration on December 10th and join in to support our community!
