In more local art news... At 583 Myrtle Avenue (near Classon Avenue), Clinton Hill Simply Art & Framing Gallery, est. 1991, has devoted a display window exhibiting Michael Jackson headlines and collectibles. The window exhibit began Saturday to accompany the announcement of the framing gallery's new blog (http://clintonhillframe.blogspot.com/) and to encourage her Fort Greene/Clinton Hill/Bedford-Stuyesant neighbors to discover Myrtle Avenue south.
Gallery owner L.B. Brown has posted an encounter she had with Michael Jackson on the new blog, which also gives details of a limited-time framing service discount offered to Michael Jackson fans.
The window exhibit can be viewed now through Sept. 9, 2009, 24 hours a day.
*Leave a comment on their blog, print it out and bring it in for a $10 discount (through October 31, 2009).
