New York, NY — MAKE ME FAMOUS is a madcap romp through the 1980s NYC art scene amid the colorful career of painter Edward Brezinski, hell-bent on making it. According to The Hollywood Reporter, “the documentary situates its subject within the context of more familiar characters and tries to understand why Brzezinski, a charmingly aloof painter, is not readily considered among this cohort.”
Attendees joined Henricksen for a screening of the documentary followed by a Q&A with Director Brian Vincent, Producer Heather Spore, and Artist Peter McGough. Not only was this event an opportunity to screen a riveting documentary and hear from its creators, but it also enabled attendees to connect with each other again.
As with most industries, COVID-19 dampened the ability to interact with peers in the architecture and design community, and Henricksen found this documentary to be the perfect opportunity to bring industry professionals together again. Henricksen’s New York General Manager Keith Cooper remarked, “After two years of digital round tables and remote networking, we thought it was time to begin in-person events again. I spoke to several people at the event that shared with me it was the first physical industry event they’ve attended since the start of the pandemic.”
Henricksen prides itself on making connections within the architecture, design, commercial real estate, and construction communities and is looking forward to continuing to bring architects, designers, brokers, and contractors together both in New York, and in each of our locations nationwide including at Revive + Thrive: Fusion + Fashion Pre-Party on April 22nd in Downtown Minneapolis and SMASH 2022 Charity Ping Pong Tournament in Chicago on May 4th.
