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 â€œthe 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.
