Norte Maar, Authors and Artists, Bushwick Library, Bushwick, art, kids, Seth Caplan, Brooklyn
The first Authors and Artists program of the new year featured guest artist Seth Caplan, who transformed the Bushwick Library in a print shop.

After a brief discussion about monsters, the kids were invited to sketch a fanciful beast. For further inspiration, Norte Maar Director Jason Andrew read the classic book  Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. Next Seth demonstrated a technique whereby the kids transferred their drawing onto Styrofoam for printing. “Lino cuts a la styrofoam and pencils,” cried Seth. Let the printing begin!

The end results were astonishing!

See more photographs of our afternoon with Seth Caplan by visiting our Facebook page. Special thanks to our community liaison Silvia Cruz and artists Jessica Wetterer and Norman Jabaut.

Norte Maar’s Third Thursdays

Norte Maar’s Third Thursdays
by Talisa Chang
The Greenpoint Gazette, March 25, 2010 

David Powers stands at the front of the small, bright white room, the rough but elegant found-wood sculptures of Norman Jabaut hanging serenely around him. About a dozen guests sit cozily amongst pink, white, and red chairs, waiting attentively for the young musician, artist, poet and MC/DJ to begin.

Out of his element, without the usual hip-hop beats behind him, Powers’ voice retains a raw and musical quality to it as he recites his poems, kaleidoscopic narratives that zoom in and out, weaving their way from the J train platform, through Brooklyn and Manhattan, out towards the sun and the universe and back into apartments, bathrooms, alleys. He speaks with eyes closed, calm and articulate, with his hands moving in rhythm as if to punctuate his words.
