Last week the MG crew went to Governor's Island to go on a studio visit with Rudy Shepherd. He has a studio at Governor's Island as part of the LMCC residency program, and he has made a lot of new exciting work for his upcoming solo exhibition in September. There were many small portraits - he makes them as a daily practice - as well as some larger work on paper. It's a fun trek to go out to the island on a nice sunny day, and you can even check out his studio in person during the summer open studios. Also make sure to see his "Black Rock Negative Energy Absorber" at First Street Park. It will be up for the entire summer.
