The Alliance for the Arts today announced its list of Emerging Voices of 2011: Seven Groups to Watch. We are very honored and excited to that UnionDocs has been included. In their words; “We are kicking off 2011 by celebrating emerging voices in the New York City arts scene. Thanks in part to UnionDocs and the six other featured groups, New York maintains its position as the arts and culture capital of the world. Whether by the audiences they serve, the content they create, the talent they foster, or the new perspectives they provide—these seven arts groups invigorate New York’s cultural scene with new energy and direction. In five years or less, they have established themselves as important members of the arts community with lasting abilities to continue and build upon their work.”
The Alliance will showcase and celebrate these groups at its Eighth Annual Friends of the Arts Party to be held at Christie’s on Monday, January 24, 2011, 6:30 pm. The evening includes cocktails, music and a private viewing of Christie’s Winter Sale of Old Masters & 19th Century Paintings, Drawings and Watercolors. Tickets may be purchased by visiting Buy AllianceforArts.org or by calling (212) 947-6340.
UnionDocs would like to extend congratulations to the other six organizations!
