Art Opening to Be Held Tomorrow Night at “Madison-Jackson”

Earlier this month, we reported on the “Madison-Jackson,” a luxury condo development in an old school building across from the Vladeck Houses.  The building includes many amenities, including a rotating art exhibition program in the ground-floor common area.  Today there’s news of the first art opening in the converted space.

“Celebrity real estate guru and developer” Michael Bolla has put out a press release talking up the new building in general and the art happening in particular.  There will be an opening preview of photographer R.L. Ireland’s “The Five Elements,” tomorrow evening from 6-8 at 371 Madison.  A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Sylvia Center, which promotes healthy nutrition in children.

Here are excerpts from the press release:

The LES is one of the last areas in Manhattan that still reflects old school New York; where artists, musicians, and forward thinkers all co-exist. The building will reflect the spirit of its surroundings and all the area has to offer with full-on luxury. Madison-Jackson is blocks away from some of the city’s best nightlife, restaurants, galleries and shops, yet on a quiet peaceful block… “The characteristics of the neighborhood were a huge factor when determining what amenities and programs we would offer at Madison-Jackson. I wanted to keep the aesthetic fresh and vibrant, and the idea of a rotating art exhibit felt unique in the sense that the mood of the room would change and be manipulated with each exhibit,” states Michael Bolla.

The invitation for the opening includes an RSVP. The phone number listed is 212-894-1038. The photos will be on display through the end of March.
