During each weekend of the exhibition, Brian Feldman will be in the gallery window meticulously making and serving 100% fresh squeezed Florida orange juice in compostable cups for gallerygoers to enjoy, and all for the price of a drawing.
Draw him a picture of an orange for a small!
A picture of a glass of orange juice gets you a medium!

Colored pencils, crayons, markers, watercolor paint sets and card stock paper will all be provided.
The gallery walls surrounding Brian are envisioned to be filled with over a thousand drawings by the end of the exhibition.
The performance will be live streamed in its entirety at
