Day de Dada in LUMEN8

ArtSpace @ SI Arts

23 Navy Pier Court
Staten Island, NY 10304

LUMEN8 is an exhibition celebrating the past seven years of Staten Island Arts’s LUMEN Festival. Co-curated by Monica Valenzuela and Raul Barquet, this exhibit will feature video, sound art, performance art, and ephemera from past festival participants and honor the artistic genres that the festival highlights.

LUMEN8 pays homage to this annual festival, pulling select work from the past seven years that we’ve loved alongside single-channel video works submitted to Staten Island Arts through an open call.

What is a Wish Penny ?

August 8, 2015

Wishes – the Penny Project

Jennifer Weigel created Wishes, the Penny Project, to get people thinking about their own needs and desires while encouraging them to actively participate in the world around them. She first began dispensing wishes in 2008.

Writing down personal wants and desires and tossing them away can be very cathartic.

Go ahead and write or draw a wish of your own and attach it to a penny.  You are welcome to release your wish to the universe by placing it penny-side-up for another person to find, or keep as a memento.

At the Day de Dada “Wish Show” at the Culture Lounge on August 8, 2015 Jennifer set up a table and helped people create Wish Pennies to be kept, given away or left for someone to find.

You are invited to participate by photographing your wish penny in your hand(s) and posting it to their Facebook page with the hashtag #11millionhands.
