Pop-Up Galleries

Via NYT: As the recession drags on and storefronts across New York remain empty, commercial landlords are turning to an unlikely new class of tenants: artists, who in flusher times tend to get pushed out rather than lured in. And the price of entry is not deep pockets, but vivid imaginations and splashy exhibits -- anything to lend their darkened buildings a sense of life.

This is a trend I've certainly noticed, starting with the long-vacant retail space attached to the Gem Hotel here in Chelsea.
