Lambert Fine Arts Replaces Fusion Arts Museum on Stanton

Posted on: January 17th, 2012 at 6:09 am by

Its iconic edifice is an exhibit unto itself.  For years, 57 Stanton Street has boasted an exterior of interweaving metallic sundries.  Everything from propellers and street signs to a bomb casing; the mural of a military biplane in flight was a later addition but no less awesome.  But earlier this fall, change happened.

Most notable was the removal of certain trinkets from the facade (i.e. bike wheels), as well as the new gunmetal paint job.  In addition, the lighting fixtures were spruced up, and bulbs replaced. The reason for the sudden activity? Well, the Fusion Arts Museum quietly disappeared from the Lower East Side.

Fusion Arts founder Shalom Neuman, who actually owns 57 Stanton, decided to hand over the gate keys to a different gallery organization called Lambert Fine Arts.  We are told that, come springtime, the newcomers plan to add some additional metalwork to the building.

Despite the tenant shift, it appears that the showroom retains its eclectic spirit, and remains a hub for artwork from left field. The current installation, the second since opening, features the work of both Neuman and Terrenceo (“Rack on Racks and Urban ARTifacts”).

It’s also worth noting that Lambert Fine Arts now represents Neuman.
