WYD this Winter? Artist goings-on you won’t wanna miss.


Punxsutawney Phil has made his annual prediction—seems winter is sticking around. But don’t let a glorified groundhog get you down. Winter is a great time for our most adored indoor activity: checking out ART! So you don’t dwell on the idea of six more weeks of freezing season, we’ve handpicked some 20x200 artist happenings that’ll turn the heat right up (at least, euphemistically-speaking... highly recommending you still layer like a lunatic). Catch our highlights below.

With art for everyone,
Team 20x200


Trayvon Martin + We Are All Trayvon Martin (pair) by Rudy Shepherd


One of Rudy Shepherd's paintings, now on display at Brooklyn's Smack Mellon

Rudy Shepherd’s stunning solo exhibition, Everything in the Universe is My Brother, is up at Brooklyn’s Smack Mellon through Feb 25th—conveniently located within walking distance of our Dumbo HQ, so you know where we’ll be.


Resist. by Edel Rodriguez

Wieden+Kennedy's poster for Agent Orange 

Agitator in the arts, the indomitable Edel Rodriguez’s Agent Orange show spotlighting the artist’s political works kicked off to coincide with the one-year anniversary of Trump’s inauguration, but it’ll be up at Portland, OR’s Wieden+Kennedy through February 23rd. What's more: Rodriguez is also speaking at Design Indaba Festival in Cape Town, South Africa. The conference runs from the 21-24 of Feb and you can still snag a ticket.

Read Anil Dash's 5+5 here!

Twelve of the many creatives profiled in 28 Days of the Web
He’s not an artist, but he is an OG 20x200 supporter and 5+5 interviewee... Anil Dash heads up Fog Creek Software, makers of the app-building community Glitch, and Glitch is co-sponsoring one of the coolest internet events going on at the moment: 28 Days of the Web. In honor of Black History Month, 28 Days of the Web features a different Black designer, developer, or creative every day of the month of February.


Prairieside Forks by Ross Racine

See Ross Racine's piece at Pattern in Landscape, now at Front Room Gallery!
NYCers will do well to drop by Front Room Gallery before Feb 18th for Pattern in Landscape, a group show centering on work that challenges preconceived notions of landscape art with the help of pattern. So of course Ross Racine’s dizzying suburban scenes are right at home.


Half Gauze and Green at Black & White Gallery

Sweet William by Amy Talluto
Get a jump on spring greenery when you stop by Black & White Gallery in Brooklyn to see Amy Talluto’s forest-filled solo show The Grape of the Air. Talluto’s painted landscapes are precisely what the doctor ordered as an antidote to citywide winter weariness.


Alice and Bob and Eve by Molly Crabapple

Scribing Reality opens tomorrow at Farmingdale State College of New York! 
Molly Crabapple’s reportage works are the focus of a new exhibition in the Memorial Gallery of Farmingdale State College of NY, spanning the artist’s time in Iraq and Syria, a societal response to the US presidential campaign and election, the refugee crisis, and her time spent in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. Up through April 9th (so you have no excuse not to schedule it in).
