SVA Alumni Exhibition Street Smart: The Interaction of Art and Design in the City #ArtTuesday
Well, now we know what we’re going to do on our next day off! This exhibit will be open through 12/20 so be sure to check it out if you’re in town before then. From SVA:
Regardless of what they studied, where they settled down or what they went on to do in their careers, all SVA graduates have one thing in common: the experience of living and working in New York City. Fittingly then, this fall’s alumni exhibition at the SVA Chelsea Gallery, “Street Smart: The Intersection of Art and Design in the City,” up from Saturday, November 18, through Wednesday, December 20, is dedicated to art and design made for or about the urban environment. The works on view—including site-specific and interactive installations, photographs, paintings, sculptures, designs and illustrations—are challenging, multilayered and politically and socially engaged, much like city life itself.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
