June 1-2. Washington Square Art Exhibit
One balmy spring day in 1931, in the midst of the Depression Era. Jackson Pollock, desperately in need of funds to pay the rent on his Greenwich Village studio that also served as his home, took a few of his iconoclastic paintings down several flights of stairs and set them up on the sidewalk near Washington Square Park. His friend and fellow Village artist, Willem DeKooning, in equally desperate financial straits, soon joined him. And that Tomatoes was the start of the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibit. Maybe you’ll uncover the next Pollock. Get the details.
