SEGD Members are invited to join Session 2: Roadmap
Host Site: The Clemente
Date: February 16, 2023 | Time:  6-8 pm ET

it’s time to assemble your dream team. In this session, co-hosted by The Clemente, discussions will cover who needs to be on your team and how to consider the right teammates in this work, building out a reasonable and realistic timeline for your capital project, and setting milestones for this project. Participants  will also learn about city-owned buildings for nonprofits and the process it takes to acquire a city-owned building, and then what to expect once you have a city-owned building. Attendees will hear from owner’s reps, an attorney, architects, and The Clemente on their experiences. This session will be moderated by Museum Hue and AIA. This session’s resources and recording will be made available one week following the live session.

SEGD Members are invited to join us on that date with some complimentary VIP tickets:

Building HueSpaces is a series that centers the creation of museums and other arts enclaves founded and led by Black, Indigenous, Asian, Latine, and all People of Color. Created through partnership between Museum Hue and American Institute of Architects (AIA) NY Cultural Facilities Committee, this five-part series highlights topics such as assessing capital needs for your organization, capital fundraising, building your capital project team, accessibility as a foundation for your project, and more. Designed to provide greater insight into how these spaces were acquired and their capital projects developed, it demonstrates the critical need for greater racial equity and representation within NYC’s built environment and arts landscape. Through case studies of select NYC-based arts entities this series will provide a step-by-step toolkit to support other arts entities founded and led by arts and cultural leaders of color who are seeking guidance on how to attain a brick and mortar of their own. 

Building HueSpaces stems from the research findings and recommendation in the HueArts NYC Brown Paper report led by Museum Hue, which highlights a greater need in investing in place as a long-term strategy for Black, Indigenous, Asian, Latinx, and all People of Color arts stability and thrivability. 

All Building HueSpaces events will have live captioning and transcripts available with the release of the recording.

This series is made possible due to generous funding from the Ford Foundation.

Join leading experience design and execution company ANC during SEGD’s 2022 XLab for a behind-the-scenes tour of two of New York’s totally unique display experiences in the revitalized Seaport District — Pier 17 and The Tin Building by acclaimed real estate developer The Howard Hughes Corporation.

The tour will begin as we enter the 60-foot-tall, open-air atrium of Pier 17 where ANC designed a customized multimedia system to fit into and emphasize the unique indoor and outdoor Pier 17 space. Featuring 4mm LED displays, seamless LED columns, ribbons, ANC content management software and more, the displays guide visitors on an engaging visual journey with content moving as you rise through the space. From the floor to the elevators, to the ribbons to the ceiling itself, visitors are drawn through the multi-use commercial property all the way to the popular rooftop concert venue.

Continuing, we walk next door to The Tin Building by Jean-Georges, the new marketplace that just debuted inside the space formerly occupied by the Fulton Fish Market at The Seaport. Newly opened this fall, The Tin Building is already on its way to becoming one of the most recognized expressions of gastronomic centers that New York has seen in the last few years—and not just because of the famous restaurateur behind it.

The Tin Building will be closed to the public as we navigate more than 1,100 square feet of innovative LED Media Glass that surrounds the escalators at the heart of the building, creating a clear view of the marketplace awaiting shoppers while they are on the escalator and a dynamic content canvas from anywhere else in the marketplace. Culminating in our final stop on the second floor where, transparent OLED windows offer clear views into the chef prep stations and cooking classes while also offering full motion graphics— making The Tin Building the first building to integrate a commercial video wall in a public space using transparent OLED.

Join ANC Wednesday, October 12th at 3pm to experience integrated, impactful digital media systems that will set the bar high for what experiential shopping and dining should be in New York.

This event is open to all SEGD New York Chapter members and all 2022 SEGD Branded Environments and Xlab attendees.

Register HERE for this tour!
