SI Arts 'Culture Lab' to open first weekend of June

By: Vincent Barone (SI Advance)

Staten Island Arts will open its new Culture Lab in the St. George ferry terminal on the weekend of Saturday, June 7.

The 2,500-square-foot multi-use lounge will include offices, exhibit space, performance space and a 400-square-foot retail Artist Market. It also will be the nation's first permanent art space in commuter quarters, according to Melanie Cohn, executive director of Staten Island Arts.

"We're excited on the national level to put art in a transit hub," Cohn said. "We really want to be a national example for what can done."

The space will be open Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m and on weekends, from noon to 5 p.m. On Tuesdays, the lounge will be open until 10 p.m. to offer evening classes geared to local artists on topics like how to deal with law enforcement while performing in public spaces.

#siselfie - Staten Island selfie campaign spawns from Borough Hall


Everybody has a favorite place to go on Staten Island.

Make sure to take a picture in it.

Be it the tranquil Greenbelt, the busy Staten Island Mall, the relaxing South Beach boardwalk, or one of the many delicious pizzerias here, borough residents are being called upon to snap a selfie in their go-to spot.

Residents and folks visiting the borough are encouraged to post photos of themselves at Island locations and add the hashtag "#siselfie" to the photos they post on social media.

The initiative was launched by the Borough President's Office Friday afternoon -- fittingly with a selfie taken by Borough President James Oddo and his staff outside of Borough Hall in St. George.
