Co-Sponsored by The East Village Community Coalition

Come celebrate artist Lily Annabelle’s Tompkins Square Library art exhibition, “Goodbye to the Brick and Mortar,” by attending this special program. Lily’s work is a celebration of the life and memories of neighborhood establishments. In illustrating memorabilia from different eras and piecing them back together, Lily skillfully tells a story that defies time, lets the old meet the new, and that pays homage to the humans who have made a mark on the community. Enjoy a moderated discussion with Lily, as well as panelists from storefronts depicted in the exhibit: Ess a Bagel, Kim’s Video and Music, and 2nd Ave Deli.
