Jim Costanzo revolutionary @NewMuseum

I met Jim at the opening of Pawel Athamer's exhibition at the New Museum. Street musicians have been invited to perform throughout the exhibition (ongoing until April 20th) Jim was invited by the artist to perform during the opening of the part of the exhibition entitled Draftsmen's Congress.  With Jim's baritone trumpet and socially conscious heart, he shared his philosophy on life and the world.

What Inspires Jim? "The common good from the commonwealth, all people created equal, all people entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

Pawel Althamer Music Art Mashup

What inspired the artists Pawel Althamer to want to include NYC street musicians to perform during his exhibition at the New Museum entitled The Neighbors?

I'm really excited to have been invited along with a great lineup of other NYC subway musicians, buskers and street performers to perform at the New Museum 235 Bowery. NYC, as a musical layer of a new exhibition entitled The Neighbors by Pawel Althamer  February 12-April 20th

My New Museum performance schedule is listed below.

The Neighbors has many layers of collaboration. On the 2nd floor Pawel will be creating new work. On the 4th Floor will be a completely interactive room where anyone can come and paint on the walls, create art.  And in true collaboration with neighbors, Pawel will create a film with Bowery Mission tenants (neighbors of the New Museum). There will also be a coat drive.
