‘Bridging Art’ was a terrific event — a salon, really — arranged by Peter Kramer and the lohud team. Pete asked artists to “present creations inspired by the Tappan Zee Bridge, its replacement Gov. Mario Cuomo Bridge or a bridge as metaphor,” as the article says. It was a benefit for Volunteer New York.
Pete amassed a great deal of talent in the room, and really brought the community together around the opening of the bridge, which over the past five years has been the largest public works project in the country.
He started the evening with a video from lohud, where photographers shared their experiences covering the bridge.
He then had the artists — writers, photographers, painters, playwrights, illustrators even a choreographer — present their work and talk about it. You can see all the people and their creations over on lohud:
It was a grand success.
