On Saturday, Nov. 6, Hayden Goode (12) hosted her very own booth at the Broad Avenue Art Walk.
This event occurs in the Broad Avenue Arts District located in the historic commercial area of the Binghampton community. The annual art walk is a street celebration of visual, performing and public art. The walk is a golden opportunity for young and up-and-coming artists to display their work.
Hayden Goode is a one-of-a-kind artist; when it comes to her paintings, she tends to channel her own personal interests.
“I would honestly describe some of my art pieces as random almost. A lot of times I paint things I just really like. I love to paint koi fish or evil, scary looking eyes. One painting of mine that had a specific inspiration was the one that shows a fake crime scene with the word ‘rad’ painted at the top. I was watching a show called ‘Only Murders In The Building,' which is this abstract, artistic series on Hulu that I really like, and it inspired me to create art out of it,” she said.
This intriguing 18x15 piece is entitled “Keith Haring Crime Scene.”
Following its completion, Goode was presented the opportunity to participate in the art walk by her aunt, who owns a jewelry business and collaborated with Goode on her booth.
“My aunt recently started a very cute homemade jewelry business. She sent me a DM on Instagram with information about the art walk, and I immediately wanted to do it and planned on setting up a booth... Then she presented the idea of doing a collaborative booth with both my art and her jewelry, and I thought it would be so cool to try out,” Goode said.
