This Side of Paradise

Event Description

The Andrew Freedman Home looks like something out of The Shining. The Bronx manor was actually built by Freedman in 1924 as a kind of retirement home for the formerly wealthy–those who’d lost their money but not their taste along with it. Weird. . . we, know. Anyway, it’s been almost empty for some time now. No Longer Empty, a nonprofit art group that got its start in 2009 by using spaces made vacant by the recession opens a new exhibit, This Side of Paradise, in the space on Wed.,  April 4 @ 6 pm. How cool is that? It gets better. More than 30 artists — some well known, like Mel Chin, Sylvia Plachy and Bronx veterans like John Ahearn and the collective Tim Rollins and K.O.S. — have been at work in the home, turning old bedrooms and bathrooms into installations that mine the building’s eccentric history as a way of drawing in the life of the borough around it said the New York Times. Head on down April 4 – June 5 on Thursdays through Sundays from 1-7 pm.

Opening night–April 5–party also not to be missed: Speakeasy After party @ 8:30 pm, featuring a concert by latin-jazz band Bobby Sanabria and Asunción. This is free!…unless you want to partake in the open bar, which costs $65. RSVP for that here.
