Pamela Newman

Urban Art & Design was launched in 2011 as a creative design firm where I could capitalize on my experiences and artistic eye to conceive, design and execute events and teach art classes.

I have been immersed in the world of art and design my entire life. Teaching art for more than 20 years affirmed my belief in the value of art and creativity in a person’s life. In 2000, I left the classroom and began producing and designing high-profile trade shows and special events at Piers 88, 90, 92 and 94 in New York City (Disney, The Armory Show, The Affordable Art Fair, fashion shows, Fox and NBC). While I enjoyed producing events, I missed teaching art and being a part of that crucial stage of development in an individual’s life. Combining my two passions was a natural progression, so I began to offer private and semi-private seasonal art classes. Classes are designed to expose students to art in a casual studio environment and provide an opportunity to explore museums and galleries in NYC.

I love what I do, whether it’s executing a once in a lifetime event or helping people unleash their creativity. Every client or student has a vision that I help bring into focus. We explore, brainstorm, design, redesign and collaborate until the event / artwork mirrors their vision.

Let us help make your next event or art experience a reality!

After 23 years providing entertainment for NYC’s most discerning clientele, we’ve had the pleasure and honor of working with the most iconic planners in the industry. Pam Newman is at the top of that list. Her rapport with her clients as well as with the vendors always amazes me. It’s like nothing can shake her! What’s with that?!?! We all know that planning events is not always a walk in the park, but Pam always finds a way to overcome those challenges and produce events that are second to none! When our clients ask us who we would recommend as a planner, it’s a no-brainer… we tell them to call Pam!

Pam’s calm and low stress style makes working with her a joy. Details are addressed with ease so that the day of the event all the moving pieces come together in a seemingly effortless way. When it comes to design, it is always a delight to see in what ways she will creatively use our space for each new event. Basically, our team loves working with Pam and the special clients she brings to Riverpark.

I love working with Pam Newman because she "keeps it calm." She gets the job done while maintaining an even keel which creates a harmonious experience between the vendors and client - thus producing an even more top notch event. Pam allows the event planning process, which is often tedious and stressful, to be an enjoyable experience for both the clients and vendors.

Pam truly brings the BEST combo of hard work and creativity!! In the spring of 2014, I helped organize a benefit for FORCE, an organization helping people with BRCA. We had an extremely tight budget, and I turned to Pam, who willingly volunteered her assistance for free. I had no idea how much work it involved, because Pam did it all!! The venue FORCE chose was challenging, because there was a huge rainstorm the night of the party, and the roof was leaking! But Pam was the only one who ever knew! From her quick fixes, to her creative touches…the party was my favorite one yet! Eternally grateful!!

Pam is a ninja when it comes to planning a killer party. Keeping a firm handle on the moving parts, she doesn't break a sweat, executing, negotiating and coordinating with grace and good humor all the details while keeping you, the host, at the center of the event. She will help you plan the party of your dreams without crushing them! Thank you, Pam for making it exactly the way I wanted and for making the making part fun!

Working with Pam in creating our beautiful birthday celebration was sincerely as effortless a process as we could have hoped. As we all know planning and executing an event can be stressful at the very least. Pam engendered confidence and ease and we are so grateful to her for that. She was truly attentive not only to our vision but also any concerns that arose along the way. Her creativity and experience resulted in a seamless festive affair from the initial planning to the last good bye of the evening. Many many thanks again Pam!
