The PKX Festival Committee and the Trolley Barn Curatorial Team spent spring break creating public art mockups and work alongside featured artists BoogieRez to begin the piece for this year’s PKX Festival.
They started the week with a trip to NYC to visit BoogieRez’s studio at the World Trade Center.
The rest of the week, the youth created plushies with sewing machines in the Poughkeepsie Underwear factory studio.
Students had insightful conversations with Boogie and Rez about pursuing their independent careers in the arts. All of the plushies that were created during the intensive, will be unveiled officially at the PKX Festival in September!
