Art Drop Day

BY DALE WEISS
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2014

Dale Weiss had another presentation all ready for Williamsburg's Vol. 10, when this crossed his Facebook feed. There have been sporadic art drops before, but when artist Jake Parker declared the first Tuesday in September as World Art Drop Day, Dale had to get involved. This presentation cronicles the experience, and foretells of the inevitable viral spread of this new annual event.

The Heavens Declare

BY ANDREW CRONAN
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2014

If you want an idea of the vastness of the universe, a good scale of reference is helpfull. Andrew Cronan uses Williamsburg's main avenue, Duke of Gloucester Street, to give some relative scale to our solar system, but then takes us to the far reaches of our galaxy, and beyond. For Andy, when he looks at those marvels beyond, it is easy to see the presence of God.

BY KINBERLY RENNER

Things my wife wishes I couldn't cook

BY RYAN BEDELL
@ VOL 10 ON SEP 20, 2014

While Ryan Bedell claims that he and his wife are trying to eat better, this presentation certainly makes the case for, shall we say, a little self indulgence. All you dieters, be forewarned. This presentation contains a collection of totally delicious images along with Ryan's unbridled enthusiasm for enjoying them.

The Naked Truth

If we can strip to our true essence, we can embrace our own story.
Using images of painted bodies, and a talk laced with quotes by famous people of wisdom, Tirza Shelton shows us how self-enriching it can be to shed the layers we have all been cloaking our true selves in since Adam and Eve first tasted the fruit of knowledge. In “The Naked Truth” from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 9, find out what is at your core.
