Last weekend for this depiction of 1980s Times Square at Howl! Happening

Jane Dickson’s exhibit, "Hot, Hot, Hot," ends its residency at Howl! Happening tomorrow (Sunday!).

The show features "a series of rarely seen and moody paintings of Times Square peep shows from the 1980s." And here's more via the Howl! website:

Dickson’s history and legacy are rooted in Times Square. She worked and lived there from 1978 to 2008 documenting her daily lived experiences and observations as a young woman. In photos, drawings, and paintings that utilize unconventional industrial and domestic materials as surfaces — including carpet, sandpaper, and black plastic bags—she captured a time and place that was notoriously lawless, squalid, and vibrantly alive.

Read more about her work at this link.

Howl! Happening is at 6 E. First St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery.

The hours are from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and tomorrow.


I like her work and backstory... here's more via an interview from January 2019...

Jane is an awesome and super cool individual and a fantastic artist. Her new book is simply an amazing look at what was once a vital and sexually hot Times Square--- terrific work that really captures the spirit of the 1980s in New York City. Catch this show before it closes... you will not be disappointed.
