'Art Street' hopes to build on success of temporary display
The creative team behind the popular Art Hotel project earlier this year have announced the location for their next endeavor.
ArtStreet will be held inside a warehouse at 300 First Avenue, just south of Broadway in the Mill at Broadway housing development. The exhibition is scheduled to run Feb. 3-25.
More than 330 submissions have already been filed with M5Arts, the nonprofit arts group that organized Art Hotel and is running ArtStreet. Those submissions have come from around the world, the group said in a news release.
Like Art Hotel, ArtStreet will be free and open to the public. Art installations are expected to appear both inside and outside the warehouse. With more space, organizers expect to accommodate more people than they did at Art Hotel, where hundreds waited in line to file through the old Jade Apartments downtown.
M5Arts said ArtStreet will cost an estimated $150,000 to run. That will cover infrastructure for the event and stipends for artists. The group is running a kickstarter campaign at www.kickstarter.com/projects/2061415620/artstreet.
