This Saturday, a free art workshop will be held at Sara D. Roosevelt Park, featuring famed graphic artist and sculptor Dennis McNett, a Brooklyn artist who has created mythical larger-than-life masks, screen prints and 3-D pieces throughout his career.
To promote his exhibition of Anti-Hero skateboards and designs, McNett is rolling onto the Lower East Side with somewhat of a party: Music, art and skateboards are the themes for the day as children, under the age of seventeen, will have the opportunity to “deck out” skateboards through the workshop led by McNett, which starts at 2 p.m.
The event will host not only artist McNett, but also skateboarders such as Andrew Allen, Tony Trujillo and Julien Stranger. There will also be live music performances from Tony and Trixie Trujillo and many others.
Ending the day will be McNett’s opening reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at The Lodge Gallery, on 131 Chrystie Street.
