AiOP’s ninth annual public art and performance festival will take place October 11th through the 20th along 14th Street from Avenue C to the Hudson River. This year’s theme is "numbers"—shape shifters, disciplined yet volatile, precise yet electric.  The 30 odd artists in this year’s edition explore the restrictions and buoyancies in the everyday performance of numbers in our lives. As these artists excavate the meaning, mobility and malleability of our daily numbers – their growth, concentration, spiraling, fluctuations, tactility and repetitive resonance – they make visible the mundane and magical ways in which numbers link places, events and people. 

Jeanette Mundt’s exhibit consists of two separate but overlapping bodies of work: paintings in space and paintings of space.Compiled as a unit within the framework of a replicated interior space, we see a female figure, rended from the real, acknowledging her own detachment while still utilizing the paraphernalia of her fantasy. On view through October 19th.

The School of Visual Arts presents "The Pond, the Mirror, the Kaleidoscope," through September 14th, an exhibition of emerging and established painters who graduated from SVA and are working in the Symbolist tradition. These "neo-Symbolists" make mythological and dreamlike pictures that challenge prevailing assumptions about narrative, subjectivity and figurative painting itself.

One of Linda's mantras over the years has been 'Get on with it...!' Sometimes frustrating, other times motivating, it brings context to this final exhibit at The Art of Beauty by Linda Mason. Next Tuesday, July 23rd, from 5pm to 8pm, support 'Moving On' and celebrate Linda as she moves on to continue her contribution to the fusion of makeup and art in the 21 Century.

The solo exhibition, by Sungmi Lee, is on view through July 20th. “Empty to Be Filled,” features six of her works from recent series of sculptures and installations. Sungmi Lee, a Korean-born artist, has spent her early life in the United States. She often brings her experience as an alliance and inevitable sense of loss and lonesomeness into the formless and translucent medium such as smoke, resins, plexiglas and broken glasses.

Alice Aycock creates art that explores the relationships between fantasy, science, imagination, and experience. Although she is known primarily for her large-scale installations and monumental outdoor sculptures, drawing hasalways played an essential role in her practice. The works on view, through July 13th, include drawings for real and imaginary architectural projects, maquettes, and photo-documentation— demonstrate the breadth of her artistic vision. 

The storied homophobia of the 1950s hardly reached the young Paul Thek or the young men in his circle. His early work, arguably the gayest of his entire career, is filled with images of his lovers and close friends, including other artists such as Peter Harvey, Peter Hujar and Joseph Raffael. In these photographs, drawings and paintings the artists attest to the importance of their intimacy, not only unabashedly figuring their same-sex relationships, but more importantly, their influence on one another's work.  On view through July 7th.

In May, the Department of Transportation chose Petrosino square as a docking station for its city-wide CitiBike program—effectively displacing any future art shows. Though many strongly object to its current placement, the program is generally considered popular and favored by residents. They support the alternative transportation but believe it should be moved to the roadbed where most of the bike rentals are located. On Wednesday, June 19th at 8:30am the SoHo Alliance will hold a rally to save the park.
