NYC Arts Cypher

This past September, we let you know about the first annual Cypher Fest, a celebration of creativity and art on Staten Island. The event was orchestrated by The NYC Arts Cypher, a fixture along the Bay Street corridor. In the clip embedded in this post, stills and video illustrate how much of the art for the festival was created and in some cases even bring viewers behind the scenes look at the works in various stages of completion.

This Saturday, September 10th from 2pm to 8pm, NYC Arts Cypher is hosting “Cypher Fest.” This first annual art festival consists of both international and local artists working towards a common goal, beautifying the neighborhood. This first annual fest boasts the talents of world-renowned street artists such as Jorit Agoch, Crisp, & Sipros

With the recent trend of “100 Years of Fashion” videos, I decided to get on board and take this trend to an entirely new level by including period accurate locations, music, and three incredible models. If you are looking for body positivity, great music, and stunning gowns, this video is for you.

The NYC Arts Cypher is interesting all year, but in the days leading up to Halloween, the Cypher transforms into a terrifying haunted house. Today, they were interviewed by NY1 news about their haunted holiday special.

NYC Arts Cypher is presenting & hosting break dancing, bands & DJ’s during Staten Island Beachfest every weekend through Sunday September 6th.

Staten Island Beachfest is a summer long festival that will highlight events in different locations in Staten Island to include the Staten Island Ferry, Borough Hall, South & Midland Beaches. At the Ferry Terminal we have the NYC Art Cypher as well as the Cypher Syndicate, they will be performing along with Charlie Chill every Saturday and Sunday.

This 8 weekend long festival will take place at FIVE Staten Island locations simultaneously with free events, giveaways, art shows, music, vendors, rides and more.

Great news! Labyrinth Arts Collective, Inc. has been invited by Ettore Mazzei, owner of Chez Vous Caterers and Publisher of This Way on Bay, to curate three Second Saturday Events July through September, 2015.
