Stark participated in the 2013 Carnegie International, Pittsburgh, and recent solo exhibitions were presented at the Aspen Art Museum (2013) and Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver (2012–13).

Beerprov @ Webster Hall

BeerProvNYC June 2014 FB

Mark your calendars: BeerProv, one of Canada’s funniest live comedy shows, returns to New York on Friday June 13, 2014 in the Marlin Room at the historic Webster Hall on the Lower East Side. BeerProv is the one of a kind comedy experience that serves up plenty of beer and plenty of laughs. It’s the live comedy show that allows the audience to control the fate of the performers. A cross between Whose Line is it Anyways? and The Hunger Games – comedians compete in classic short form improv games and are systematically eliminated by audience vote until only one improviser is left standing. The winner is given the honor of drinking beer from the BeerProv Mug of Champions. Be sure to buy your tickets in advance as this show will sell out well before the doors open.

After-Dark Theater: Our Town @ Green-Wood Cemetery

Our Town image

Wednesdays – Saturdays, June 11 – 28
Brooklyn Brewery beer available at the bar on Fridays and Saturdays

Enjoy a classic piece of American theater amidst the timeless beauty of Green-Wood Cemetery. Our Town tells the story of Emily Webb and George Gibbs of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, a small New England town at the turn of the twentieth century. But the lessons of Grover’s Corners stretch far beyond the sleepy town, as the play touches on the beauty of life, the randomness of the universe, and celebrates spirituality and the importance of memorials and memory. Deeply rooted in American and social history, Our Town fits in perfectly with Green-Wood’s own history and the hundreds of thousands of personal stories memorialized across its beautiful landscape.

As the sun sets on Green-Wood’s stunning 478 acres, you will be immersed in a fresh new take on this American classic, helmed by innovative director James Presson. Presson is a graduate of the theatre programs at Fordham University and Moscow Art Theatre. He serves as the co-Artistic Director of Less Than Rent Theatre, a position he has held since it was founded in 2010, and is the recipient of the 2013/2014 Dramatists Guild Fellowship for the book of his musical, Outlaws.

Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 on the day of. Purchase your tickets here:

Justin Favela Mural Party @ The Las Vegas Backyard Wall (NV)

IMG_5243 (3)

The Las Vegas Backyard Wall is a local Downtown wall settled in a residential neighborhood in the shadow of the Stratosphere. The wall is open to invited artists that have radical ideas for it. Each artist will paint over the previous artists work and will be documented by time lapse photography. This time around artist, Justin Favela, has been working on quite a beauty and on May 24th they’ll be celebrating at the wall with one big party. Come out and cheers Justin; enjoy tasty food, good beer, interesting art, and great company.

A Message from Artist, Justin Fvela:

 Directly translated, “Puro Jale”, means “pure pull” or “just work.” This is a term that I always heard growing up at family gatherings and backyard parties. The term was almost used as a greeting:

“What’s new?”

“Puro jale.”

When asked to participate in the Las Vegas Backyard Wall series, those backyard family gatherings immediately came to mind. People getting together celebrating each other and relaxing after a week of hard work. For this month’s mural I had the help of friends, family and a few day laborers to make this installation happen. After a hard week of work, it’s time to celebrate!
