Who’s exhibiting and opportunities for artists

 

Week of 10/26

lead with love

A rash of murals have been popping up on the East Side thanks to Community Housing Initiatives and the leadership of Brian Bonanno. Follow Third Space on Facebook and Instagram to witness the transformation of bare exteriors into stunning works for art. Earlier this week, a vandal defaced a number of these murals with symbols of hate and white supremacy. Steps to repair the damage are underway and a GoFundMe has been created to collect community support to help protect the work created in the Third Space Mural Program.

“While we cannot always protect from hate we will continue to do our best to curate art that is reflective of the diverse people that make up our community and ensure that they feel welcome and safe in the places they live.” - Brian Bonanno
