Art in General and Then Some

Last Saturday, the non-profit arts organization Art in General was host to Underground Up, a fall benefit party in an old firehouse on Lafayette Street. Artists Cake, Chris Stain and Cern were invited to create site-specific murals, the catch being they only had a few hours Saturday afternoon before the party to put up their work. It’s a good thing they know a thing or two about painting under pressure…

Cake was kind enough to invite me into the space on Monday, shortly before the pieces were painted over. [Heads up: I’ll have a full interview and studio visit with Cake coming soon!]
