FAB's office was just graced by a representative of this really cool organization, No Longer Empty. They organize and host public art shows in vacant storefronts and properties. They are also a non-profit company dedicated to renewing neighborhoods in New York City via "high-caliber art installations with accompanying programming to the public".
No Longer Empty is planning to have their upcoming exhibition in the neighborhood and we're looking forward to helping them in any way possible. As we get more information, we will update what is going on, but as for now we can simply look forward to having even more art in the LES.
Their upcoming show, Cartoons in Conflict is their fourth major show and will be opening December 10, 2009 at 6 West 26 Street with an opening reception at 6PM. This show focuses on the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and how cartoonist from all over the world have chosen to depict this situation.
