Michael Alan’s Bushwick studio glows in the dark with Santa, his reindeer, and his buddy the bear! The bear is a character based on Michael Alan’s dad, Buddy. Buddy likes to draw with all his friends who sit with him in his studio. They watch movies and watch Santa and his reindeer. You should become one of Buddy’s friends. If you’re in NYC for Christmas and you’re sick of being at Rockefeller Center, getting a headache from tourists and taxis, then come take a load off and have a powwow under Michael Alan’s Christmas tree! Are you a nerd? Do you sometimes feel alone? Do you not like big crowds? Do you like to sit and nestle a book? Do you like to create lasting moments? Come meet like minded monkeys! For all ages!

Studio sessions are small seated hangouts, gatherings for all kinds of open minded people, for viewing, photos, laughter, fun times in a chill gathering for the love of art and community. Watch, vibe, take photos, meet people, free coffee, make art, model….
Venture into Michael Alan’s imaginative cozy and bizarre Bushwick art studio, decorated from ceiling to floor with a thousand Alan works, a labyrinth of childhood drawings, new works, his baseball painted cards, paintings, drawings, sculptures, toys, and prints. These are all for the looking. Feel free to ask for a book of work to view.
Come sit and take part, watch, take photos, draw, LOL, maybe even join the family, take a nap, space out for hours………this is not a party, but an ongoing project born in 2004. The Living Installation is one of Last DIY cult creative circles. A together zone. If you’re not a socialite, this is a perfect experience for you. This is not a bar or a venue. This is a positive and calm art experience. It began as the Drawathon in 2004 and has transformed over the years to become a multimedia experience for all!
This is not a bar or a venue. This is a positive and calm art experience. It you!
