Brooklyn Collage Collective Cut & Taste: an exhibition of art and beer
Chinatown Soup invites you to celebrate a collaboration between one of our favorite artists and an art-conscious company. If you’ve walked the streets of downtown New York below Houston Street, then you’ve passed by a Jay Riggio tag. Tröegs has worked with accomplished artists from across the country, including larger-than- life Philadelphia muralist Isaiah Zagar, surrealist Boston glassblower Stephanie Chubbuck, Harrisburg found-object sculptor Jason Lyons, and award-winning sculptor, photographer and mixed-media artist Ryan Upp of Cleveland.
The company first teamed-up with Brooklyn-based collage artist Jay Riggio for its springtime Art of Tröegs project, which asked friends and fans to create works of art from the brewery’s bottlecaps, cans, and labels. Jay’s piece—an upended landscape featuring a Hollywood pinup, prehistoric monuments, and dozens of tiny cutouts from DreamWeaver Wheat and Perpetual IPA labels—will hang in the new Art of Tröegs gallery, opening on July 14th at the Hershey, PA brewery.
Works on display at Chinatown Soup will include an array of mixed media from all nine members of the Brooklyn Collage Collective, to which Jay belongs. BCC members will also craft limited edition summer postcards that incorporate elements of signature Tröegs packaging.
Opening reception | July 12th, 7-10pm Join us for an evening of art and beer to celebrate the show’s opening.
