It was the second installment of Light Bodies two Art Health Meditation Movement – a night dedicated to transcendence – this time in conjunction with Collage NYC, a weekly hotspot for collaborating artists in the NYC circuit. Led by brainchild EyeOccupyNYC, artists from all over came together to unite, perform, and network.
Black cushioned seats surrounded the back area while the cities sky scrapers overlooked the busy Delancey traffic underneath the matching heavy pacing of the room. Overlooking the space was a transparent rooftop with assorted branches and neon light bulbs above an 8 piece screen projecting the nights theme: Amy Winehouse – in the way we’d like to remember her – entertaining thousands of fans, alive and well.
Artists of all kinds united, and painted alongside the exterior of the DL’s rooftop under dimly lit light bulbs to compensate for the rooms party atmosphere. With a crowd combining models, emerging artists, and NYC bystanders looking for a peak into the scene, Light Bodies 2 fulfilled and pulled through in attendance; following up a successful launch event spearheaded by artist EyeOcuppyNYC. The artist, model, and cultural leader debut two mixed media pieces.
Quiana Parks contributed her dj’ing talents to the night alongside sponsors: Radha Beauty, live Your Life Gear, Hurtjohn, Reebok, Yoga Works Soho, Dj for A Cure, and Season Whishpers. The nights important participants were highlighted by the nights floor as they adorned newly and unreleased Reebok’s throughout the night, marking the floor with vibrant life, like the cool kids in the cafeteria, thanks to EyeOccupyNYC and Reebok.
Artist Hurtjohn hosted and opened the night’s showcase alongside artists Kamsie and Bridgette Perez seguing into the closing statements made by collaborating directors Mini People and El Savior. Other artists involved were Tyler Gold Flower, Rebekah Letch, and Joshua Peters
