To help celebrate the launch of 180 Franklin, a new luxury rental building in Clinton Hill, Citi Habitats New Developments hosted an all-agent art competition using the building’s very own gallery space.
Designed to allow tenants to express their creative side, the amenities package at 180 Franklin also includes an artists’ studio and a music rehearsal space – as well as more traditional common areas like a social lounge, modern fitness center and landscaped roof terrace.
For the contest, over 30 pieces of artwork, from photography to paintings to mixed-media, were submitted, with a new MacBook Pro as the grand prize. Winners were chosen by attendee ballot at the building’s Grand Opening cocktail event.
In third place was Colleen Koltick from Citi Habitats’ Park Avenue South office, with her abstract painting in shades of black, white and grey. The second place winner was a photo by The Upper West’s Side’s Caroline Bass taken during her recent journey through India. In first place – and the winner of the laptop – was Jacob Henderson from the firm’s Williamsburg office. His geometric painting, “Internal Conflict” was judged the partygoers’ favorite.
