The show will be in the old 21st Precinct police building, located on 327 East 22nd St. It was built in 1863 and acted as a functioning precinct until 1914. We will have a pop up gallery space and 4 floors of murals, wheatpastes, graffiti and installations by renowned artists from NYC and worldwide. In the tradition of the Outlaw Parties of the late 80′s and early 90′s we will re-invigorate an unused space with a wide range of creative minds working in multiple mediums. Scheduled opening reception is 8/16/14 and will be open for viewing all weekend and a closing event the following weekend. The building is scheduled for demolition the last week of August. This will be the first of an ongoing series with Suzuki Capital at their various properties throughout the boroughs.
