A commentary on the social forces that are quickly making The City a difficult place for artists to survive; The New York Times recently highlighted Lower East Side artist Clayton Patterson. Patterson, a bastion of the LES counterculture art scene for the last 35 years is making a break for the lush hills of Austria. His parting oeuvre, $16 Burger, will be on display at a Pop Up gallery in Chelsea (W. 15th St. & 9th Ave.) starting April 15th.
