KENNEDY YANKO SCULPTURE GARDEN

Explore the primacy of the senses and gain self awareness with Kennedy Yanko's three dimensional sculptural pieces. 
 

Kennedy Yanko (b. 1988, St. Louis, MO) is an artist whose practice explores the primacy of the senses as a means to gain knowledge about the world and to achieve self-awareness. A dedicated practitioner of qi gong and yoga, Yanko often incorporates the movement of her body to create works—in some instances immersing her limbs or whole body under a rubber sheet onto which she tosses paint and “dancing” in a way that unpredictably alters the paint’s natural dispersal. Most recently, her three dimensional sculptural paintings have served as the basis for immersive environments in physical space and in virtual reality. 



NICOLAS HOLIBER: SCULPTURE GARDEN

Discover Nicolas Holiber's large-scale sculptural pieces in the fair's Sculpture Garden created from reclaimed materials.

FAIR BAR

Enjoy refreshing craft beers and beer cocktails created by the masters at Sixpoint Brewery, plus a variety of delicious wine by supplied by Red Hook Winery.


While some historical records indicate Sixpoint Brewery was founded in 2004, the real birth of Sixpoint begins at the dawn of civilization. That is when the earliest societies began cultivating cereal grains to make fermented beverages, and the desire for excellence in the craft of brewing was forged. Even during the earliest civilizations, rich iconography had adorned various brewing vessels, and pictographs depicting the craft of brewing were rife with symbolism. One symbol has transcended and survived throughout the ages - the Sixpoint Brewers' star.

Boone Pickens, and former mayor, Mike Bloomberg, Neapolitan Express started by creating the first eco-friendly food truck, powered by Clean Energy Fuels.
