One of the commissions will go to an artist (from anywhere) with a proposal for a socially-engaged project to take place in New York.

“To be working with my hands with the clay generates a stimulus in the brain. The connection between the brain and the breathing, and the sweating, and the time that you spend, and how you slow down thinking or you accelerate thinking—you generate the different aspects of thinking. When I feel that it should be ready is a quite subjective thing. The shape should represent what just happened before.” —Gabriel Orozco

A week in the life of a Nick Cave horse from HEARD•NY dancer Jules Bakshi.
“I approached a rosy-cheeked Ailey student, Molly Levy, to be my rear. ‘Sure!’ she said gamely, and we spent the rest of rehearsal moving as one, Molly hinged forward at the hips, flat backed, holding my waist as I trotted us around the room.”
Creative Time intern Ashley Perry delivers our collected donations to Katherine Gressel, Smack Mellon’s Programs Manager.
Many NYC art non-profits suffered greatly as a result of Hurricane Sandy. In December, Creative Time partnered with Paddle8 for [Re]Start, an initiative to raise funds for some of the hardest hit organization. With auction proceeds and generous matching from CT’s Board of Trustees, we were able to raise over $12,000 for Smack Mellon, Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC), Printed Matter, Inc., Snug Harbor, and Coney Island USA. Last month, we visited three of the organizations to hand them the donations.
If you missed Nick Cave’s wonderful horses in Grand Central, this is what didn’t happen. (Thanks to Instagrammer MeatnGreet who tagged this #IHEARDNY, we found it on our special social media amplification page designed by POKE New York: http://bit.ly/IHEARDNY)
