Art in Empty Spaces is a collaboration between CB3’s Arts & Cultural Affairs Task Force and No Longer Empty to transform the neighborhood’s empty storefronts into temporary arts exhibitions. The initiative draws together building owners with the local arts community to make a difference: showcase local talent and organizations, attract foot traffic, increase cultural tourism, patronize local businesses, and assist with leasing vacant storefronts in the Lower East Side/East Village.
