Our Monthly Salons @ Mothership.NYC are informal, salon-style gatherings for artist friends & colleagues and other arts appreciators – come join us for wine, laughs and shared stories! Typically (but not always!) occurring on the second Tuesday of each month, the evening's highlight is usually a talk or other short production by our current Artist-in Residence onboard, followed by other visiting artists and/or local creatives. Improvised presentations by audience members are also very welcome: whoever wants to sing, play, perform or show us something cool will have the most appreciative audience in NYC!
Our doors are wide open to all comers as of 7:30 pm.
We’ll have some drinks and popcorn on hand; feel free to bring along whatever else you’d like to see on our table. And, by all means, take along a friend, too!
