The New York City Mini-Fridge / Miami Popsicle Project is in Williamsburg today and tomorrow (noon – 7pm) for the Fridge Art Fair’s “Rainbow Cookie Edition” – which takes place in partnership with the infamous Not Another GALLERY! for New York Armory Week.
Among the highlights of the fair are a rainbow cookie eating contest and taste-test with comedic judges, as well as the world premiere of the conceptual art installation STARFKRS, a fake coffee shop by Canadian artist David Craig Ellis.
And in Miami… The Miami Popsicle Project: Rainbow Popsicles is celebrating a decade of the Fridge Art Fair, and introducing the rainbow popsicle – it promises to be the greatest Fridge Miami Art Fair yet, held at the Miami Coconut Grove.
The original vision of founder Eric Ginsburg was that of a fair that is both Art and Soul, replete with whimsical and kitschy fun. As the world steps out of the pandemic’s shadow, this is a time of renewed passion and zeal for the arts and all of their benefits.
This weekend’s show features:
– Jackson the painting dog
– The worlds largest ceiling-suspended rotating rainbow cookie
– Albert Diaz, who was Basquiat’s partner in the SAMO graffiti campaign
– Legendary east village painter Rick Prol
– Painter Paul Kostabi (original member of White Zombie)
– Official unveiling of “STARFKRS” a conceptual installation

– Painting of Dogs by Fridge Art Fair Founder Eric Ginsburg
– Rainbow Cookie taste test with comedian judges
