We’re Freeing Ourselves, 2021
Shawn X is an independent artist and creative based in New York, known for her vibrant, visceral, and graphical image-making across digital, spatial, and motion mediums. She creates experiences in music, fashion, and technology, collaborating with clients such as New Yorker, New York Times, W Hotel, Nike, Google, and Ghostly International.
We’re Freeing Ourselves is the first public art project to be hung on the back of a Gantry (the directional signage for cars) in NYC! The Hudson Square BID is proud to bring this kind of innovative, bold, and artistic placemaking to our neighborhood; creating art in unexpected places.
Special thanks to the following organizations who helped bring this project to life: Gilsanz Murray Steficek, Polise Consulting Engineers, North Shore Neon, and Peter J. Catanzaro
