What is it? Chelsea Market has a new exhibit that honors some of "the most pivotal individuals in our nation’s history and pop culture." The works are on display throughout the market's main concourse. Brooklyn artist Voodo' Fe has curated the show, which includes "his very familiar and notable pop culture character renditions, all brought to life through the various textures of mixed media that he employs to tell his story," according to the show's official press release. In an effort to celebrate both Black History Month and Women's History Month, the artist presents mixed media renditions of the likes of the late Kobe Bryant, the Notorious B.I.G. and Frida Kahlo. Specifically, expect to stumble on a Harriet Tubman piece mostly made of bottle caps and paint, alongside a pretty giant painting of the one-and-only late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Why go? Most of the pieces stand 7 feet tall, so you really can't miss them upon entering the market and, the best part of all? The exhibition is completely free to all visitors.
