Artist Spotlight: Arianne Benford

On September 8-9, 2012,
24 Prospect Lefferts Gardens artists will open their studios to the community as a part of the Brooklyn Museum “GO Brooklyn Art” project. Community members registered as voters can nominate artists for inclusion in a group exhibition to open at the Brooklyn Museum on December 1, 2012.

This month, PLG arts will spotlight 24, GO PLG ARTISTS from the neighborhood.

How do you feel about being a part of “GO BROOKLYN ART”?

“I’m excited to be a part of GO Brooklyn. It gives me a much needed excuse to show my work and get feedback in order to make it better. It has been great meeting other artists in the community and networking. Studio practice can be a lonely venture sometimes.”

Is there anything about your PLG neighborhood that gives you inspiration to create?

“Brooklyn and PLG are filled with so many beautiful and resilient people. This place really feels like a community, and feeling that kind of support is instrumental to my work.”
