Party with ArtWeLove and THE DROP

Join ArtWeLove in supporting THE DROP: Urban Art Infill this Saturday by coming to the VIP opening of their 2012+ exhibition, an all-day festival of art, music, and performance devoted to investigating the relationship between creativity and the urban environment. Held under the High Line, the show will feature a diverse selection of emerging and established artists, from Yoko Ono to Paul D. Miller, Midori Harima, Seth Carnes, John Ahearn, Ali Hossaini, and Saya Woolfalk.
