#TBT LOVE SUCKS An Anti-Valentine’s Day Special.
“Do you hate Valentine’s Day as much as we do? Whether we’re in a relationship or not, Valentine’s Day just reminds us of all the ways we feel inadequate. Also, what’s up with all those tacky stuffed bears? Does anyone really want those?” — #AmphibianStage

When have you been silenced?
For this free production, our friends at @amphibianstage asked this question of Black men living and working in Fort Worth, TX and received deeply personal responses. THIS IS MY STORY presents three stories from an educator, an event planner, and a Veteran Peer Service Coordinator, each of whom has learned to be silent as a means of self-preservation—but at what cost? With poetry from Calvin Walker and George Njomo, and a music performance from Phib favorite, Tha Band, THIS IS MY STORY, a video project conceived by Dev’n Goodman, challenges us to look deeper, shed assumptions and envision what is possible when we approach one another with understanding and compassion.

Odes for a World in Search of Joy

Presented in CultureHub (@culturehub_org) in Re-Fest 2021 on May 1 at 7pm CDT.

Inspired by Pablo Neruda’s Odes to Common Things, Amphibian Stage has commissioned Texas artists of all disciplines to create performance works that celebrate simple, human-made objects. We might take these things for granted in our day-to-day lives, but upon closer examination they can inspire joy, gratitude, and perhaps even awe. Join us for an evening of music, movement, animation, and more as we rediscover the beauty of not-so-ordinary trinkets, baubles, and tools.

Artists include: Ruben Carrazana with “What’s In the Box?”; Jay Duffer with “Salt”; Rafael Esquer with “Ode to Things”; Jonathan Fielding & Brenda Withers with “Spec-Ulation”; Charles Jackson with “Captain Iron”; Sarah Mosher & Alex Holliday with “Jewel: Bearing Witness From the Table”; Kristine O’Brien with “Pulp”; Illana Stein with “Ode to Possibilities”; Evan Michael Woods with “Whisked Away.”

🗽New York City’s vernacular typography, urban textures, and the bright yellow color palette of New York taxis 🚖 and protest movements inspired the creation of the brand identity for Open House New York’s 2021 Series, “Radical Knowledge: Libraries as Community Catalysts.”

*
Design team: @chuy_caps @josefresan @liao__san @alfalfanewyork

Client: @OpenHouseNewYork provides broad audiences with unparalleled access to the extraordinary architecture of New York and to the people who help design, build, and preserve the city.
Through year-round programs and the annual Open House New York Weekend citywide festival, Open House New York celebrates the best examples of design and planning throughout the five boroughs, from historic to contemporary, and helps foster a more informed conversation about how architecture and urban design sustain New York as a vibrant place to live, work, and learn.

🏙NEW YORK CITY, the endless ⛲️ fountain of inspiration...For the new graphic identity of Open House New York’s 2021 Series, “Radical Knowledge: Libraries as Community Catalysts,” we found our muse in 🗽New York City’s vernacular typography. The design team searched throughout the five boroughs for letterforms that would represent the diversity of the city and its people. In the end, we created a brand identity that is dynamic, vibrant, and resilient like the city and its people.
*
*
*
More about OHNY’s “Radical Knowledge: Libraries as Community Catalysts” program: As New York City’s libraries emerge from the pandemic, Open House New York will engage its audience to re-imagine, co-create, and re-invigorate what this radical instrument of knowledge can be, when built from the community’s voices and lived experiences, to foster a vibrant, prosperous, and just city for all New Yorkers. What better way to represent the program that, with a brand identity that is dynamic, ever changing, and resilient like the city and its people?

NEW WORK! Brand Identity for Radical Knowledge: Libraries as Community Catalysts for Open House New York @openhousenewyork
*
Launched in 2016, Open House New York’s #UrbanSystems is a year-long thematic series that invites a broad public audience to explore how overarching urban systems impact the way we use and occupy space in the city.
*

Alfalfa Studio developed the graphic identity for the 2021 Series, Radical Knowledge: Libraries as Community Catalysts
*
The public library—a repository of knowledge, a resource for learning, a hub of community, and an architectural building type—is in the midst of profound transformation. Created by philanthropists and community leaders in the early 20th century, the public library is a radical instrument designed to ensure equity, access, and full participation in society. The library is one of the pillars of a healthy democracy.
New York City offers a dynamic network of learning opportunities and experiences, with education, cultural, and community-based organizations weaving our social infrastructure. Libraries as Community Catalysts explores this learning and knowledge system, from its institutional legacies and architectural history to how we will access knowledge in the future and new strategies for learning. In this series, the public library serves as the portal for exploring learning institutions and their impact on individuals, communities, and the city.

Big thanks to @dorothysdunn and everyone at @openhousenewyork for making the design process a fun and exciting experience.
