Off the Hook Arts Festival Goes to Brooklyn!

Apr 27, 2018 | Off the Hook Arts

Mark Steinberg and Marija Stroke at National SawdustOff the Hook Arts Festival of Colorado presented an evening called MISSION EARTH at the National Sawdust performance space in Brooklyn, New York, to a capacity audience. MISSION EARTH featured a serious but hilarious presentation by Kal, the editorial cartoonist of The Economist and the Baltimore Sun; a scientist’s view of climate change by Columbia University professor Adam Sobel; a sneak preview of Ouroboros by our 2018 artist-in-residence Katherine Doyle; and Bruce Adolphe’s Einstein’s Light with filmed visualizations by Nickolas Barris, performed by violinist Mark Steinberg of the Brentano String Quartet and pianist Marija Stroke. The evening was very New York, with lots of schmoozing, hors d’oeuvres, and wine before and after the “show”, plus gorgeous photography by Arieh Shalev and Ralph Gabriner that were raffled off during the evening. Bruce Adolphe was the master of ceremonies and Jephta Bernstein joined Kate Doyle to read the names of the raffle winners. National Sawdust was the perfect place for this OtH Arts Festival extravaganza, bringing our Fort Collins/Boulder Festival to national attention for the first time in our seven-year history. It is only the beginning. If you want to get involved with OtHA, please contact [email protected] or make a donation or volunteer here.
