Join us on November 16th for light refreshments and a complimentary cocktail to celebrate the launch of BEYOND THE BRICKS - a project that highlights the Upper East Side's vibrant small business culture, neighborhood history, and talented local artists.
WEDNESDAY | NOVEMBER 16 | 6 TO 8 PM
RYAN'S DAUGHTER | 350 EAST 85TH STREET
Local pub Ryan's Daughter will be transformed into a gallery space featuring the stories of small business owners, original photography, and historical insights. Paired with work by local artists, these elements come together to spark conversations about what makes a community "beyond the bricks."
Following the launch, original art will be on display in businesses around the neighborhood. The exhibit will continue at 966 Lexington Avenue, by appointment, until mid-January. Small business stories and history will also be on line at FRIENDS-UES.ORG/BEYOND-THE-BRICKS.
WITH SPECIAL THANKS TO RYAN'S DAUGHTER FOR HOSTING THIS EVENT
