Last night brought the opening of an art exhibition inspired, in part, by the High Line.
"Reflecting Transformations" features artworks that address the idea of transformation and celebrate "the regeneration of the area and the transformative nature that art can have on a community. This eclectic show is installed in a vacant storefront on 16th Street in the Caledonia building, mere steps from the 16th Street entrance to the High Line. The show was organized by "No Longer Empty", a collective of curators and artists who are devoted to temporarily transforming vacant storefronts into venues for contemporary art. A welcome project, especially in these tough times. The exhibition runs through September 26.
