It's fresh, it's frenetic, it's liberating," said Sean Bono, founder of ArtBattles.

ABOUT ART BATTLES
ArtBattles was created as a reaction to the growing Graffiti culture of the 1990s and early 2000s colliding with Fine Art School sensibilities and taste for healthy competition to perpetuate an artist’s talent and reputation. This has grown to be a study of artist’s relationship to viewer and the “Contest Consciousness” of pop culture today.

New York, November 3, 2011 – Brice Rosenbloom of BOOM Collective (formerly boomBOOM Presents) is proud to announce the 2011 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST lineup. The festival is to be held on January 7th & 8th, 2011 in New York City. The NYC Winter Jazzfest will take over threeWest Village venues, (le) Poisson Rouge, Kenny's Castaways and Zinc Bar on Friday January 7th, and five venues, (le) Poisson Rouge, Kenny's Castaways, Zinc Bar, Sullivan Hall, and Bitter End on Saturday January 8th. This marks the seventh year of the annual NYC WINTER JAZZFEST, and our continued mission to showcase top quality jazz and experimental music.
The 2011 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST will feature over 60 different jazz groups during the Arts Presenters (APAP) conference. Similar to past years the festival will provide an opportunity for artists to showcase in front of presenters, promoters, talent buyers, educators, musicians and avid fans. Over 5000 arts professionals will be in New York City for the annual Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) conference from January 7-11. As there will be hundreds of showcases scheduled throughout the weekend around the city both at the Hilton Hotel and in alternative venues, Winter Jazzfest offers APAP conference attendees, and the general public, the opportunity to experience the best of today's new live jazz and experimental music in club venue settings. Once famed as the focal point of New York City's rich jazz and live music scene, Bleecker Street and the Village provide for an ideal festival experience with jazz and experimental music groups performing all night at five of the neighborhood's esteemed venues within close proximity of each other. On this night the 2011 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST will continue to redeem the rich jazz heritage of the Village and again will bring jazz fans back to Bleecker Street. The 2011 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST includes over 60 of today’s most interesting jazz groups from New York, Brooklyn, Chicago, New Orleans, Philadelphia, France, Holland, Israel, Germany, Cape Verde, Mali, Cuba, Argentina, England and more.
Currently new jazz groups are under represented, yet they are culturally essential to the continued development and future of jazz and the cultivation of new audiences for jazz. Jazz artists need support and exposure to the significant institutional booking forum that the Arts Presenters conferences represent. Winter Jazzfest is pleased to offer a forum for presenters and music enthusiasts to experience and support the future of jazz. The 2011 Winter Jazzfest appreciates generous support from The Cultural Services of the French Embassy.
The 2011 NYC WINTER JAZZFEST will again feature showcases with guest curators Meghan Stabile of Revive Music Group and Adam Schatz of Search & Restore. In line with the mission of Winter Jazzfest, Stabile and Schatz continue to invigorated NYC's jazz scenes in their own ways by promoting and supporting young and deserving new jazz artists while bringing increasingly growing audiences to the music. Kenny's Castaways will stage the Search & Restore showcase while Sullivan Hall will house the Revive Da Live showcase.
