The good people over at Gradient Magazine got a preview of a very vital exhibit that has just opened at influential New York City art gallery Deitch Projects, a memorial to the recently passed multimedia artist Dash Snow. Entitled A Community Memorial, Deitch and friends and family of the artist, who died on July 13th due to a heroin overdose, are encouraging Snow’s fans to join together and publicly mourn the photographer, graffiti artist, and videographer that NY Magazine hailed as one of “Wharhol’s Children” .
The show will feature some of Snow’s most popular, often gritty, photographs as well as scores of unreleased Polaroids that were found in Dash’s studio. Running from July 23rd to August 15th, the gallery has erected an open wall for fans to scribble, paint, or post art and messages in Snow’s memory. If you are in New York, make sure to stop in and get a glimpse of all Snow accomplished in his lifetime as well as pay your respects to the artist whose work made him a downtown visionary.
