The space at the listed address is designated to become a temporary platform for exhibiting artwork. Artist will work with the building’s façade and exterior to demonstrate contemporary art. Viewings of the artwork will be made available from outside through the windows for the public.
The project’s intention is to showcase the historical architecture of the building’s storefronts and pay homage to the original structure of the building’s interior. The introduction of contemporary art into the space contextualizes it within the framework of art; viewing the structure as a sculpture in and of itself. Subsequently, drawing relevancy, value and appreciation for the building and the neighborhood.
The space is not open to the public. The interior of the warehouse space is only made available to those cleaning out the space and making minor adjustments to the building.
A small reception will be held on Wednesday, December 6th for the artists involved in the project. The reception can take place in the parking lot and will be held as a private event within a privately owned property.
