Pastoral Daydreams with Caroline Burghardt

Pastoral Daydreams with Caroline Burghardt

Saturday, May 19th from 1-3pm

The Bronx River Art Center is pleased to present visual artist Caroline Burghardt at the Shifting Communities Roundtable as part of No Longer Empty's This Side of Paradise exhibition at the Andrew Freedman Home located at 1125 Grand Concourse in the Bronx.

For the event Pastoral Daydreams, interdisiplinary artist Caroline Burghardt will present an interactive community workshop and photography "studio" session using the Andrew Freedman Home as scenic backdrop. Like the original residents of the Andrew Freedman Home, who knew they were no longer rich but were performing as a means to make themselves happy and comfortable in their last days, we too perform rituals searching for means to escape our realities, looking for happiness in our waking hours through daydreaming. The idea for the series came from the artist's own desire to be in the countryside, to be in a quieter, more peaceful place. She believes this desire is shared by many urban dwellers, those that lived in the Andrew Freedman Home before and those that live in the surrounding neighborhood now.
