An immense and eye catching urban public art piece by Hell's Kitchen resident and artist catches the eye at Sara D. Roosevelt Park on the Lower East Side.
Jarrod Beck's Uplift.
Now, how do we figure a way to commission some new work from Jarrod Beck for Hell's Kitchen?
Uplift is on view now (through August 2015) in Sara D. Roosevelt Park in the NYC’s Lower East Side. The site is on Houston Street, between Forsyth and Chrystie Streets. The project was made possible by the Clare Weiss Emerging Artist Award given annually by the NYC Department of Parks and Recreation. Thank you to the family and friends of Clare Weiss, RubberForm Recycled Products and Austin R. Smith.
Here is a Flickr Search for Jarrod Beck.

"You have to remind yourself that you can do the very best you can when you're very, very relaxed, no matter what it is, whatever your job is. The more relaxed you are, the better you are. That's sort of why I got into acting. I realized the more fun I had, the better I did. I thought, well, that's a job I could be proud of". - Bill Murray

Sunday. I'm up early. As usual. The DST adjustment thing last weekend didn't work for me. It never does. So, I'm up even earlier than usual... It's kinda fun to walk around the streets of Hell"s Kitchen to get coffee from my favorite Arab place... (The one on 9th between 51st and 52nd on the West Side of the Avenue still has large coffees for $1.50. Everybody else, it seems, is $1.75)... Plus, you get to see all the bars that are still full of people more than an hour after when the 4am last call was supposed to happen... Boiled my Steel Cut Oats for the next week or so... Listening to Pandora New Age Instrumental station. Ideal Sunday morning ambiance.
