The Work Office Pay Day Party Party at BRAC

The Work Office is an art project at the Bronx River Art Center that mimicks the Work Progress Administration of the Great Depression by giving artists projects to work and paying them the Depression-era wage of $23.50. The projects include tasks such as: build a bridge, make a mixed CD, and give a concert for your plant. There’s a pay day party at then end of each week where the artists receive their paycheck and invite the public to check out their work. My favorite piece was Moira Williams’ Bronx Tarot Cards project.
