Culture on the Cheap
From The New York Shitty Inbox: 155 Freeman Street
Some time ago I had reported that an artist’s space was slated to grace the above building. Well, if what I received in my inbox bright and early this morning is any indication, this is at long last going to happen! A chap named Peter Russo writes:
I’m writing to let you know about 155 Freeman, a newly renovated carriage house in Greenpoint. It was announced this past week that the building will house an arts-and-culture venue, opening doors later this summer.
The 2,000 sq. ft. storefront will become the home of Triple Canopy, Light Industry, and The Public School—three arts organizations which collectively present film screenings, musical performances, artist lectures, hands-on workshops, and more. All three groups previously shared a space on Livingston Street in downtown Brooklyn, which was featured in Paper Magazine…
Photos and a walk-through of the space are available upon request.
Feel free to write or call for further information.
Needless to say I was ALL OVER M. Russo’s offer and will be taking a walk-through of this space early next week! In the meantime here is a video from this organization’s Kickstarter page. Enjoy!
