Emerge Art Show at Strivers Garden Gallery Opens

The important art exhibition, eMerge: Danny Simmons & Artists on the Cusp, opened in Harlem on Thursday, July 12 at 6 pm. The exhibition, opening at Strivers Gardens Gallery, is anchored by the works of visual artist Danny Simmons, co-founder of Rush Arts Gallery + Resource Center, a core program of the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation. Danny, brother of Russell Simmons, is also the co-creator and executive producer of the HBO series Def Poetry Jam and a published author. The exhibit will include the work of nine hot contemporary artists, repurposing everyday materials like teabags, thumbtacks and buttons into fine art. Co-curated by Lisa D. Hayes, Esq., manager of Strivers Gardens Gallery, and event producer and writer Souleo of Souleo Enterprises, LLC, it runs through September 7, 2012. (Photos by Timothy Duwhite)
