New Sidewalk Outside Mark Miller Gallery on Orchard

Posted on: December 3rd, 2010 at 6:18 am by

You may all breathe a sigh of relief.  The Mark Miller Gallery street obstruction at 92 Orchard is currently on its way out.  After serving nearly a year of jail time behind a complex arrangement of sidewalk sheds and plywood barriers, the entire storefront is finally visible again.  That includes the mom-and-pop Ja-Mil Uniforms.  It’s a holiday miracle!  A fresh sidewalk was poured, and is now open to pedestrians.

And though it doesn’t look it, the Mark Miller Gallery is operational.  Indeed, this past Wednesday was the last day of the inaugural exhibition by Kevin Berlin, “Double Happiness.” There will apparently be a brief hiatus before the next showcase begins.  “Show Me the Money” is scheduled to arrive at the gallery on February 9.
