A new art exhibit opened to the public yesterday at the World Trade Center Oculus in Manhattan’s Financial District. Titled Resurgence, the collection is curated by Clayton Calvert, a painter, sculptor, and installation artist. The exhibit features 28 established and emerging artists, including World Trade Center resident artists, with work that speaks to the resiliency and resurgence of New York City.

“I have spent the past two years working at the World Trade Center with many of the artists featured in this exhibit,” said Clayton Calvert, NYC Culture Club co-founder and curator of the exhibit. “Now for the first time, members of the public can see their work and meet and talk to many of them. Our goal is to inspire people of all ages and backgrounds to reflect on the artwork, and on the theme of resurgence as our society emerges from the pandemic.”

This theme is told through each artist’s unique perspective. Rob Reynolds, Lionel Cruet, LeRone Wilson, Holly Lowen, Seren Morey, and Matt Moser-Clark raise environmental issues. Social justice themes are addressed in the works of Kevin Claiborne, Jason Wallace, BoogieREZ, and Heather Haynes. Joe Woolhead, Todd Stone, Ricardo Arango, and Kerry Irvine all have pieces that honor work, a pivotal component in rebuilding the communities around us. Carlo Maria Mariani, Max Pellegrini, Taezoo Park, Danny Aron, Chellis Baird, Ricardo Arango, and Alex Nero all speak to a shared experience and the interconnectedness between us. Ashanté Kindle, Komikka Patton, Miguel Angel Payano, and Anna Weyant have works full of intrigue and intricacy that speak to ideals of beauty but that also reach well beyond an initial aesthetic impression. Many of the artists will be present to talk about their work and experience.
