NYC ART CURATION

Vans commissioned Creative Drinking to serve as consultants and project managers for a series of temporary art installations across New York.

We launched the project at the Vans General Store in Williamsburg with Leslie Diuguid, a New York-based artist and the first and only Black Female-owned Fine Art Print Shop in New York, and collaboratively prints for Artists, and Designers, Illustrators, and Galleries. The installation showcased Leslie’s working process with artist Skye Volmar on a 19-color screen printed edition.

For a semi-permanent installation for the Vans store, located between the Chelsea Market and the Whitney Museum of American Art, we wanted to highlight Vans’ history in New York and worked with long-time collaborator Wane One. Wane One has been an active and progressive participant in the NYC graffiti community since 1983 when he painted his first train and partnered with him to create hand-embellished archival prints of the iconic 1972 New York City subway map.

We next worked with artist Goldie Poblador to transform The General into a multi-sensory installation composed of glass sculptures and artificial flowers. A celebratory ode to her Filipinx heritage retells the myths and histories of particular flowers with dark histories. It features four sculptural dioramas from her ongoing Fertility Flowers series and a wall-bound installation consisting of glass tubes and flowers.
