SP Weather Station Event + Christy Speakman talk

November 6, 2011 from 4 - 6pm

A forecasting workshop and a chance to make a video weather report in front of a green-screen.

Christy Speakman talks about how she has engaged with different neighborhoods she lived in around the Bronx as source material for her work throughout the past 5 years and the SP Weather Station invite you to participate in a forecasting workshop and a chance to make a video weather  report in front of a green-screen. 

Christy Speakman is a Bronx-based artist who has shown her work at the Bronx Museum of the  Arts, Chashama 461 Gallery and at Webster University in Leiden, The Netherlands. She participated in the Prospect 1.5 Arts Biennial in New Orleans and the LMCC Art Residency.

Co-founded by artists Natalie Campbell and Heidi Neilson in 2007, SP Weather Station is an interdisciplinary project that collects weather data, hosts a Guest Lecture Series, and organizes weather-related publications, events, and exhibitions. As an informal umbrella organization, SPWS invites participation from many other artists, groups, and weather enthusiasts, while maintaining a rooftop station base in Long Island City, New York.
