The Myrtle Windows Gallery - displays of art in local businesses' windows - celebrates its first anniversary this weekend. They'd like to hear from local residents about what worked and what didn't, and how to improve the program. Here's some info from Myrtle Minutes: If you haven't had a chance to check out the fourth exhibition in the Myrtle Windows Gallery, make sure you do so this weekend! We'll be saying goodbye to this show, curated by Kennis Baptiste of The Rising Arts Gallery, next week. Come out to Tamboril (between Steuben and Grand) on Sunday from 4pm-9pm to celebrate this fantastic show that featured the works of ten Brooklyn artists in our MWG storefronts, as well as inside Pillow Cafe and Tamboril.
So, what did you think of MWG's first year? How did art in storefront windows impact your experience walking down Myrtle? We want to hear from you, so please send us your feedback! You can post comments here, or send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Oh, and while you're touring this exhibition, remember to thank your Myrtle merchants who have generously donated their storefronts for the cause of promoting public art! I'm not sure if the holiday window painting was part of this program, but it was one of my favorite Myrtle Ave art projects!
