Jonathan Atkin, “Hero Project” at Steamship Lilac, NYC

Mon 16th Jun, 2014

By APA Admin in Recognition

Hero Project is a selection from Jonathan Atkin's on-going work-in-progress collaboration with dance artists aboard historic ships. His mission is to increase visibility of our maritime heritage by reaching new non-maritime audiences. In the exhibition, dancers athletically grace the gritty vessels in oversize photographs mounted throughout Lilac, from the bridge to the engine room. For more on the project, see hero project
