New Year Free-for-all

Thursday, January 11, 2024

New Year Free-for-all is Thursday, January 11, 2024 from 6:00pm to 8:30pm at Halsey Institute galleries and Hill Exhibition Gallery. The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art is kicking off the new year with their A New Year Free-for-all event, sponsored by blūm in honor of the institute’s 40th anniversary this year. Attendees can enjoy a communal art-making event featuring two parts. The event will be 30 minutes of creating art before swapping work with another artist to create for an additional 30 minutes. “Whether it’s a drawing that was never completed, a pastel that wasn’t the right shade, a paper that was too small or a sculpture that didn’t complete a vision, the Halsey also encourages attendees to bring in any past work, materials or supplies of their choosing and give another artist a go at creating. Art supplies will be offered by the Halsey, and the only rule is that all work must be able to be taped to a wall or displayed on tables/floor once finished (no oil paint, heavy machinery and hate speech or imagery).”
