Delancey ‘History Tribute Fence’ Submission Deadline is May 1
This image has been archived or removed.
Once SPURA breaks ground, Delancey Street will become a clusterfuck of cacophonous construction. This developer’s wet dream will bring 1,000 units of housing, half of which is earmarked as permanently “affordable.”
As previously reported, the Lower East Side BID is spearheading the “History Tribute Fence” to help make the historic transition easier on the eyes. The grassroots art project, crowdsourced via ArtHERE, will dress the fenced perimeter of the recently-constructed “Delancey Plaza.”
The deadline for artist submissions has been extended twice already, and there are now several submissions to show for it. A couple are Lower East Side regulars on the street scene – Klughaus Gallery and Joseph Meloy (“Vandal Expressionism”).
You still have until next Wednesday (May 1) to submit ideas for consideration. Head here for the nuts and bolts regarding submissions.
