Howl Happening

Howl Happening Howl! Happening is a hub for experiencing, exploring, and creating art, culture, and counterculture that celebrates the East Village and downtown NYC.
(81)

Like the neighborhood in which it was born and the Howl! Festival that began it all, Howl! Happening is a space of untamed creativity. Howl Happening curates exhibitions and stages live events that showcase the historical legacy and contemporary culture of the East Village and Lower East Side. It is also dedicated to preserving the archives of artists who spent their creative lives working in this vibrant community and houses the Estates of artist Arturo Vega and the beloved performance artist, Tom Murrin aka “The Alien Comic.” The history of the East Village is still being written. The mix of rock and roll, social justice, art and performance, community activism, gay rights and culture, immigrants, fashion, and nightlife are even more relevant now and Howl Happening aims to shine a light on art and social history in the heart of the community where groundbreaking creativity and influential ideas still thrive.

Mission: Howl Arts, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the past and celebrating the contemporary culture of the East Village and Lower East Side. Howl Arts, Inc. creates opportunities for artists to produce and show their work, and engages in activities aimed at improving the quality of life for artists and members of the creative community.

Join us tomorrow Jan, 25 at 7PM for an evening of readings by @_claudia_summers_ , @peternolansmith69 , and Noah Prince. Just as the paintings of @janeinpeepland describe her experiences of living in Times Square—once a mecca for voyeurs, exhibitionists, criminals, and misanthropes—these writers describe a bygone era of this infamous locale.

"Confetti lingers in lonely gutters and the crevasses of the sidewalks. It spins upward through spiraling gusts of wind eventually landing again. Aside from your best intentions, nothing escapes the gravity of the neighborhood." —Noah Prince

"Looking through Ahearn’s window, we enter a subjective view of the street preachers, lunatic ranters, sidewalk performers, drug addicts, hookers, thieves, police, homeless, pedestrians…it’s enough to entertain even the most jaded B-movie fan… "

Jane Dickson: "Hot, Hot, Hot" opens Thursday, January 9, 2020. Opening Reception from 6 - 8 PM.

"A part of the politically charged 80s scene of artists working at the intersection of street art, hip hop, film, and installation—like David Wojnarowicz, Keith Haring, Jenny Holzer, and her filmmaker husband Charlie Ahearn—Dickson was a member of the influential artist collectives Colab (Collaborative Projects) and Fashion Moda in the South Bronx."

Thousands of New Yorkers ditched the corporate sponsored Heritage of Pride Parade to participate on the Reclaim Pride Coalition's Queer Liberation March on June 30, 2019 where no police, politicians or corporations were allowed to participate. About 50 thousand people participated on the march starting at the Stonewall National monument up Sixth Avenue ending with a rally at the Great Lawn in Central Park. #ACTUPNY #CentralPark #dyke #EndHomophobia #EndTransphobia #fabulous #GayLiberationFront #GaysAgainstGuns #GenderEquality #GenderNonConforming #LGBTQ #NewYork #NoCorporations #NoJusticeNoPride #NonBinary #NoPolice #NYC #NYCPrideMarch #queer #QueerLiberationMarch #ReclaimPrideCoalition #RevoltingLesbians #RiseAndResist #SingOutLouise #Stonewall50 #Transgender #WeAreProud #WorldPride2019 © Erik McGregor - [email protected] - 917-225-8963
