The Time In Children’s Arts Initiative is proud to present selections from Brian Alfred's Millions Now Living Will Never Die!!! Originally presented in 2008 at Haunch of Venison, Berlin, and later at Haunch of Venison, New York, Millions Now Living will Never Die!!! is a stunning collection of 333 painted portraits: iconic figures and friends who informed and influenced Alfred's creative practice, from musicians and architects to politicians and writers.
Brian, a long-time supporter of Time In’s work — and a dad — will be joining Time In for a reception and community workshops for children. Stay tuned for details!
About Time In Children's Arts Initiative
The Time In Children’s Arts Initiative has worked, since 2006, to transform the lives and learning of New York City’s youngest and most at-risk public school children. An awardee of the renowned Maxine Greene Foundation for its groundbreaking work in arts-education, supported by the New York Community Trust, Bloomberg Philanthropies,The Catalog for Giving and other notable funders, Time In’s powerful aesthetic, intellectual and social-emotional programming provides a clear antidote to the debilitating inequities that children living in high-risk, chronically impoverished communities struggle with daily.
Now an ongoing part of a normal school day for hundreds of New York’s most disadvantaged public elementary school children, Time In recreates the New York Magazine Best of NY HiArt! program, which for 20 years has served the children of some of the world’s most privileged families -- from David Bowie and Hugh Jackman to Rupert Murdoch and Mort Zuckerman - as well as in residencies at The Hollingworth Center for Gifted Education (Teacher's College), and the Speyer Legacy School for exceptionally gifted children.
Beginning with 30 kindergarteners from Harlem's failing Family Academy in 2006, Time In was founded on the belief that life-long learners and leaders emerge not from punitive time outs, but from effective participation in the real world. Every child, regardless of socio-economic background, is entitled to a thoughtfully crafted, arts-enriched education in which each individual child’s talents and needs are recognized, and the support for greater creativity, intelligence, self-esteem and a brighter, better future is more than just a promise.
