Weldon Arts Presents “Crumbling Cities” - A Solo Exhibition by NETHER
Weldon Arts is proud to present Nether in his first New York exhibition. Nether is an urban art campaign that hopes to impact and beautify the bleakness of the city of Baltimore through vibrant street art with the aim of evoking public discussion. The pieces that are wheat pasted to the selected (usually vacant) facades comment on the city below the smog as well as the forces that have brought it to its shameful state. Nether sees his work as a force that solidifies people’s connections to the city Baltimore. The quest is an attempt to reclaim and recycle the tragic landscape all while opening people’s eyes to often ignored issues in the city, such as mass vacancy.
Opening Thursday, January 24th, from 6pm to 9pm. The exhibit runs through Saturday, February 16th.
