The 62

The 62 is a Brooklyn-based art collective that combines agricultural experimentation, electronics, engineering, design, fashion, politics and fun.

We consider our workspace a laboratory where we tinker, romanticize, cook and converse about notions of self-sufficiency, sustainability, beauty, building communities and the possibilities of using art to make that happen.

The 62 is Andrei Kallaur, Hubert McCabe, Matthew McGuinness, and Morgan Sheasby, with Cooper Gill.
