The Williamsburg underground art scene is certainly first-rate. But if you dont know whats been happening in New Williamsburg (a/k/a Philadelphia), head over to the Cinders Gallery for the opening party of Big Kids, Little Kids, an exhibit based on the book of the same name, about the artists who have contributed to Phillys excellent emerging contemporary-art movement over the last decade. Curated by John Freeborn, co-founder of Space 1026 in Philadelphia, the not-to-be-missed show includes posters by artist Shepard Fairey (of Obey Giant fame), the whimsical paintings of Clare Rojas, and the cartoon works of skateboard designer Jim Houser. The opening coincides with tonights Sixth Annual Williamsburg After Hours Armory Celebration (WilliamsburgGalleryAssociation.com).
