NYC Cohort I Fellow Alina Bliumis, along with her husband Jeff, have embarked on “A Painting for a Family Dinner,” a new participatory project, in which the Bliumises offer an original work of art in exchange for a family dinner in the Bronx. They approach the dinner with no agenda, merely a desire to learn more about their neighbors to the north of their own Brooklyn home.
“We just would like to meet them, talk, spend some time, have a conversation and exchange art for food,” says Alina. They have broken bread with about a dozen families in the Bronx, and are seeking more interested parties. For more info, espcially interested parties living in the Bronx, should visit the Bliumis’s site, linked here, for more details!
