Grants to Local Venues

The Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center and the Victor D’Amico Institute of Art have received grants from the Creative Incubator Grant Program of the New York State Council on the Arts and the Greater Hudson Heritage Network.

The Pollock-Krasner House will direct the funds toward the production of a virtual reality tour of the barn studio, which will enable visitors to experience it as it was when Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner were working there. The tour is being developed by MediaCombo and will become available when the museum opens on May 1.

The D’Amico Institute will use the funds to create “Motivations,” which will bring the philosophies of Victor and Mabel D’Amico to life through actors who will engage with audiences

through interactions with objects from the D’Amicos’ collections.

Pop-Up at MM Fine Art

A three-day exhibition of work by Justin Lyons is scheduled to take place tomorrow through Sunday at MM Fine Art in Southampton. Mr. Lyons, who lives in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla., has been working on-site at the gallery for the past month in preparation for the show. His mediums include wood, acrylic, house paint, spray paint, oil paint, epoxy resin, and pencil.

He began his career as a street artist, pasting paper images onto public walls, signs, and power boxes. Inspired by Cy Twombly, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Barry McGee, he has expanded his audience beyond the streets to galleries and art fairs throughout the United States. The gallery is open by appointment only.
