No Longer Empty, the organization that orchestrates public art exhibitions in vacant commercial spaces, needs your help. Their latest project is scheduled to open on the Lower East Side at the end of next month. They had an empty space lined up, but unfortunately, it fell through. So, now they’re in search of an alternative location.
The exhibition is based on the tragic fire that tore through a popular gay bar in New Orleans in 1973. Thirty-two people were killed and police were certain it was arson. But no witnesses would talk, and all but one church refused to hold a memorial service for the victims.
