Vacant Spaces

A trend in exhibiting artwork at unoccupied storefronts/businesses/public spaces is currently occurring throughout the country.   No Longer Empty www.nolongerempty.org, a non-profit group in NYC, exemplifies this current trend by producing and promoting exhibits of contemporary art in vacant or unusual spaces.

I love their bold initiative to exhibit conceptual art in vacant areas, completely exposing the viewing public to new ideas, while making use of these great, under-utilized spaces. And they have a large interactive component as well, involving local children and other viewers in projects related to their exhibits.
