Critical 5 art events this week in NYC: Sandy relief, November 7-11
Still weathering the effects of Sandy, NYC is cleaning, clearing, and healing this week. Art events follow the lead. Get your fix of entertainment while supporting the Sandy relief efforts.
On Thursday November 8, join Dine Out Williamsburg for a night of good eats and good cause. Participating restaurants, bars, and business are donating a percentage of all sale to the Red Cross for Sandy relief efforts.
Both affected and inspired by the storm, artist Sebastian Errazuriz dip-dyed classic "I Love NY" tees blue, creating an eerie, powerful image of New York underwater. These shirts are $40 and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Superstorm Sandy relief programs.
Tonight from 8 - 12am a $20 donation will get you a night of comedy and music with performances by comedians Rory Scovel, Adam Newman, Cami Climaco and Ben Kronberg and music by the Reformed Whores and others. All proceeds go to Animal Care and Control's New Hope Partners and will help assist 44 animal rescue groups.
On Sunday, MoMA will be holding a free public presentation on conserving damaged art and cultural works. There will be speakers as well as a question and answer portion.
Saturday night at the UCB Theatre, the stand up comedy show "If You Build It" will bring laughs and Sandy support. It's only $10 a ticket and 100% of show proceeds go to Lower East Side Recovers.
