The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) presents:
Eric Drooker Slide Lecture
Thursday, October 25, 2012 at 8 pm
MoRUS's Storefront in C-Squat
155 Avenue C
Avenue B native Eric Drooker will give a slide lecture exploring his early years as a street artist in NYC and will trace the evolution of his graphic novels into animated films — and from his cover paintings of "The New Yorker," to his slow infiltration of the mainstream. The artist will talk about growing up on the Lower East Side and how the changing landscape has shaped his vision.
He'll screen animation he designed for the movie, "Howl," reminisce about his friendship with Allen Ginsberg and discuss the process of adapting the Beat poem into the recent "Howl: A Graphic Novel." He will accompany his lecture on various musical instruments.
The Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space (MoRUS) is a living archive of urban activism opening in C-Squat's storefront on November 17th. The museum chronicles the East Village community's history and grassroots activism. It celebrates local activists who transformed abandoned buildings and vacant lots into vibrant community spaces and community gardens.
