Making it Organized by Aria McManus, Launch and Reception

March 22, 2013

Announcing the first issue of a collaborative art publication entitled Making It. The book contains submitted works from a variety of creatives from varying backgrounds organized by New York based Artist- Aria McManus. Join us for a launch with the contributors of Making It on Friday, March 22, 6-8 pm.

Artists featured vary from internationally renown to locally established. Each of the 23 artists were uniquely chosen for their distinct creative background. Writers, designers, illustrators, comedians, were all asked to submit an original drawing or idea. Each page represents a unique point of view. Submitted works include, photographs, text, layered imagery, drawings, and scented stickers. The intention of the project was to challenge these artists to work in a different medium than that of their expertise and to see how new practices can lead to new ideas.

Aria McManus is an artist and designer living in Manhattan, NY.

“Making it” Issue One is a limited edition release of 250 copies, and retails for $13. It is available for purchase here
