*Every* Person in New York!

Added on by Sara Distin.

84-people-on-14th-street-5-28-2008 I am the proud new owner of a Jason Polan Every Person in New York drawing. I was one of the lucky 200 to order one at 20x200 before the edition sold out in a matter of seconds. The series is part of Polan's mission to draw every single person in New York City, a daunting but admirable task, no doubt. To learn more about the project, check out his site (linked above). He has garnered much deserved attention, so you can find even more information here, here, here, and here.

The best part about this project was opening the envelope to see who I received... and.... drum roll... pause... my New Yorker is a man at MOMA, drawn on May 18th, 2008. I was SO happy that this was my drawing because I am also a fan of Jason's Every Piece of Art in the Museum of Modern Art Book.

I envy Jason's energy and tireless dedication to drawing and am grateful for his observations of one the best things about New York City... its extremely diverse, bustling, humming, and (mostly) minding-our-manners-and-getting-along-in-a-relatively-small-space population.
