“Eutopia”, derived from the Greek εὖ (‘good’ or ‘well’) and τόπος (‘place’), describes a society with qualities considerably better than ours.

εὖτόπος is the first group show by the artists of the 9th Street Phenomenon, a creative management group established in 2015 by The Vanderbilt Republic.

This large-scale, site-responsive exhibition connects artwork and installations by Sarah E. Brook, Charles Heppner, Carlton Scott Sturgill, TAXIPLASM, TJ Volonis & Dale Williams to the storied past and bucolic present of Staten Island’s historic Snug Harbor — creating a space to present the energy and form of dreams made real.

Curation, lighting & technical design by George Del Barrio.
