Delancey Underground Presenting Month-Long Exhibit at Mark Miller Gallery

Posted on: March 15th, 2012 at 6:28 am by

The ambitious Delancey Underground (aka “Low Line”) concept is riding high on the proverbial tidal wave of momentum. It seems everyone and their mother is contributing to the Kickstarter campaign, which at the halfway mark, has amassed over $135,000 in funding. Not to mention explosive media coverage, including a shout-out during the iPad 3 announcement last week.

With the cash they’ve amassed, the Delancey Underground crew can now build a full-scale mock-up of the subterranean park in an “abandoned Lower East Side warehouse” (Essex Market south of Delancey) come September. And now to take it a step further, co-founders Dan Barasch and James Ramsey are presenting their vision during a month-long public residency at the Mark Miller Gallery on Orchard Street.

That’s right, this gallery show seems like more of a glorified promo initiative to get the word out on the project. From the press release:

Join us for a special exhibit focused on the LowLine! Experience a life-size rendering of a park underneath Delancey Street; a 3D model of the space; and beautiful prints and drawings. Our exhibit will be live from April 1-29 at The Mark Miller Gallery at 92 Orchard Street, and we’ll both be available to answer questions at the Open House on April 1. See you there!
