Cheap Fast & Our of Control, presented by the SCOPE Foundation, opens its doors March 4th – 8th in a 2000 sq ft pavilion connected to the SCOPE Art Fair at Lincoln Center. “Artists are consistently asked to donate artwork for benefits,” explains organizer & artist, Lilah Freedland, “CFOOC puts the money directly in the artists’ hands by giving them 70% of the sales from their auctioned art, skills and education.”

The 5 day event will showcase bands, films, and sell artist multiples with a price point geared for the ‘everyperson’.

“We want the SCOPE Foundation to be an egalitarian endeavor,” says Freedland, “Folks can come by and purchase a print or a book or a record, and know that the majority of the money they spent buying an awesome artwork is going directly to the artist while supporting the future initiatives of the SCOPE Foundation.”

Special Installations
The SCOPE Foundation is pleased to present Maya Hayuk…

Maya Hayuk’s mural will be displayed at the entry of SCOPE New York 09. Maya is a muralist, painter, photographer, printmaker, curator, player of records, writer, performer, collector, Barnstormer, video maker, documentarian and lover of life who’s lives in Brooklyn, New York by way of San Francisco, Baltimore, Boston and Toronto. From her largescale murals and installations to small works on paper, her obsession with symmetry and her collection of images of mandalas, playing cards, hexes, totem poles, Ukrainian Easter eggs, quilts and bandannas play out in works that espouse the traditional as well as the innovative.

And Kristen Schiele…
Kristen Schiele creates “RIDING AMERICA LIKE A CHEAP PONY,” a full-scale timber frame house installation. Based on the artist’s 2D works, the house is a scenic domestic land of memorabilia made from dumpster-derived objects and found timber. Mock Rifles, games, and beer symbolize the hard currency of the Great American Experiment.
