Curated by 17 year old Malissa Williams, (who also participates in the exhibition), this depiction of New York City is based on the views of four unique young female artists. Hailing from various parts of the world, and in different states of young adulthood, these young women offer their varying drawing styles to create a prism projecting nascent hopes and desires and a picture of the New York of tomorrow.
Curator’s Statement: Participating artists Jen Kaplan, Anna Mytko, Kseniya Kapitka, and I, depict New York City based on our particular and personal views. We are of different ages, come from various cultures, and live in disparate parts of the country. These distinctions and our divergent experiences determine our views of NYC. Anna, originally from Belarus, is currently a Sophmore at Kent State University in Ohio. Jen Kaplan is moving to NYC from Cleveland to attend college, (she plans to live in New York for the rest of her life). Kseniya and I are Juniors at LaGuardia High School in New York City. Because the two of us are native New Yorkers, we offer an inside perspective about neighborhoods and places that are off the beaten path. We hope that by giving you views from different angles and unique personalities, we present a colorful portrait of the city we love. – Malissa Williams
