It wouldn’t be the Lower East Side without another “gritty” showroom dedicated to street art. The latest entrant in this category is Fat Free Art, a spartant space that recently signed on to 102 Allen Street, formerly Center Space Gallery.

Fat Free Art will christen the 950 square-foot ground floor on December 9 with a solo exhibit by DAIN.

The new gallery is described thusly…

A STREET ART friendly space on the corner of Allen & Delancey in the heart of the Lower East Side of New York City.

Created to mimic the gritty streets of NYC, it will NOT feature traditional white gallery walls. NOT linen white, off-white, bright white, historic white, egg white or Snow White…

But WILL SHOWCASE ART on surfaces made of brick, cement, wood, plexi & metal.

950 square feet of 12 foot EXTERIOR walls INSIDE. The same outdoorcanvases that street artists have been tagging since the beginning of time.

To celebrate the opening, the gallerists attracted the paint cans of Tats Cru, who imparted an eye-grabbing mural (street signs) onto the brick facade.
