Curator-Led Tour of Impractical Jokers:  Homecoming  

Saturday, September 29, 2018 2:00pm  

Join Guest Curator Joe Imburgio for a tour of the dynamic and hilarious new exhibition.  

 

Get your exclusive Impractical Jokers: Homecoming merchandise, only available a the Staten Island Museum!

Impractical Jokers: Homecoming explores the story of four longtime friends from Staten Island whose hidden-camera, comedic television show, Impractical Jokers, has become a pop culture phenomenon. Steeped in embarrassment and awkward situations that make us laugh and cringe, the humor is built upon a foundation of trust and camaraderie amongst the four guys, James “Murr” Murray, Sal Vulcano, Brian “Q” Quinn, and Joe Gatto.

See original costumes, props and art created over the past seven seasons. View new interviews, episode highlights and learn about behind-the-scenes production, including some secrets. Take a journey with the Jokers from high school hijinks to mainstream comedic success that all started on the shores of Staten Island. Interactive surprises are found throughout the museum to make the Jokers’ exhibition experience as unexpected as the Impractical Jokers themselves.

This exhibition has been made possible, in part, through support from Lead Exhibition: Sponsor truTV, Partner Sponsor: North South Productions, and Contributing Sponsors: Office of the Staten Island Borough President Island Auto Group, and the SL Green Family Foundation.

Family Art with Lina Montoya

Family Art with Lina Montoya

Lina Montoya A.K.A. “Ele Eme” will lead monthly Family Art Workshops where she will share her inspiration and techniques as guests of all ages discover different materials and concepts found in her work. Each workshop explores a unique theme in the artist’s practice from found objects and collaborations to textile art and indigenous culture.

Workshops take place on the first Saturday of the month from 1:00pm to 3:00pm (unless noted), are free with Museum admission, and open to all ages.

May 5: Cross Stitch (Special time – 11:00am – 1:00pm)
Lina Montoya uses fencing as fabric for her public art. In this workshop, participants will explore the creative potential of everyday objects to create works of art in the textile tradition of cross-stitching. Participants will learn how to grid a design and then weave colored fabrics and notions to create a finished piece.

Register

 

June 2: Bottle Flowers
Originally from Colombia, Montoya said this project was inspired by her home country's annual Festival of Flowers, in which townspeople carry baskets of flowers through the street. For the installation at New World Prep, more than 5,000 recycled plastic bottles transformed a Port Richmond sidewalk into a sea of flowers, thanks to the work of 250 middle school students. Participants of this workshops will be guided through the techniques used to create these unique “bottle-flowers” calling for environmental justice through beauty. Register here.

Register

 

July 7: Mariposas Amarillas (Yellow Butterflies)
La Isla Bonita (The Beautiful Island) is one of Montoya’s recurring public installations which seeks not only to beautify urban environments but also to connect with the local community. Mariposas Amarillas is part of this series and is inspired by music. Using the monarch butterfly as an icon of migration, this project pays homage to all those who have flown away from their beloved land. Guests will work with motifs and techniques used in the development and installation of Mariposas Amarillas, in order to participate in the ongoing conversation around the utopias, dreams, ideals, and aspirations that inhabit the collective minds of different communities. Register here.

Register

 

August 4: Mola
The mola is a handmade material that forms part of the traditional outfit of the Guna, an indigenous people of Panama and Colombia. Molas have their origin in body painting. However, after colonization by the Spanish and contact with missionaries the Guna start to transfer their geometric designs to fabric, first by painting directly on the fabric and later by using reverse appliqué. In this workshop, families will paint on fabric/use paper and collage techniques to explore the geometric patterns, themes, and colors traditionally associated with molas. Register here.

Family Art Workshops are supported in part by the Lily Auchincloss Foundation and Richmond County Savings Foundation.

 

About the Artist:

Lina Montoya, A.K.A. “Ele Eme”, has been a Staten Island-based artist since 2010. A passionate, creative, and rising graphic artist and designer born and raised in Medellín, Colombia.

Montoya has an extensive background in graphic design, web, and advertising working with several clients and agencies worldwide. Recently, because of her community-based creative work, she has been developing her career as muralist, teaching artist, and community organizer. She has experience working with public agencies and community based organizations around New York City.

As a vehicle to express her talents, share her migratory experience and celebrate multiculturalism, she founded the “Ele Eme Project” in Colombia, before she moved to the United States in 2010. It is an artistic initiative developed between New York City and Latin America that intends to exchange “Magical Experiences” through socially engaged art for public space beautification and landscape transformation.

She has been working since 2013 on two on-going series of public art: “La Isla Bonita Series,” as a tribute to Staten Island and New York City’s beauty and diversity and “MusiCalls Series,” that intends to beautify as many places as possible along the Americas from North to South.

There are several pieces on display around Staten Island where she has participated. In addition to all the temporary art-making activities she leads around the five boroughs and the murals she has painted in Colombia, Panama, and Mexico.
Montoya is a granted artist by the Department of Transportation (NYC DOT), Staten Island Arts (COAHSI), the Wagner College Port Richmond Partnership, City Parks Foundation (CPF) and UNIQLO Arts Expressions Grant 2017 by the Department of Parks and Recreation New York City Parks. Mentee of the Immigrant Artist Mentorship Program of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA). Teaching artist for the Police Athletic League (PAL) and Groundswell Community Art Project.

Participatory Budgeting

Participatory Budgeting

What is Participatory Budgeting?

Participatory Budgeting is a democratic process in which community members directly decide how to spend part of a public budget. It’s grassroots democracy at its best. It helps make budget decisions clear and accessible. It gives real power to people who have never before been involved in the political process. And it results in better budget decisions—because who better knows the needs of our community than the people who live there?

More than 1,500 cities across the world have adopted Participatory Budgeting (or PB), like Chicago, Boston, and Greensboro. To find more information on how the concept has worked elsewhere, visit Participatory Budgeting Project.

Through Participatory Budgeting, community members – like you – directly decide how to spend at least $1,000,000 of the public budget in participating Council Districts!

Learn more about Participatory Budgeting here.
