Artist are always looking for a new way to gain exposure but what if you really used your skill to do so?

Before arriving at Harlem’s Maysles Cinema, Arrow plans to make stops in every New York borough along with brief visits to northern New Jersey and Bridgeport, Connecticut over the next two days.
