    workshop Please report back if you attend and help reinvent the wasteland that is the space under the BQE CLINTON HILL BROOKLYN April 20 2009 The Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership and Storefront for Art and Architecture will host a community workshop in the space under the BQE on Park Avenue at Washington Avenue on Saturday April 25 th from 3 4 30pm inside SpaceBuster a temporary public art installation created by German architecture firm raumlaborBerlin The Partnership invites residents and other stakeholders to participate by brainstorming creative permanent and temporary uses and physical improvements with the help of volunteer facilitators from Pratt Institute s Planning program The event is free and open to the public but RSVPs are required as space is limited The Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership and Storefront for Art and Architecture bring Spacebuster a mobile inflatable art installation to the Wallabout area of Clinton Hill on Saturday April 25th to help kick off a community planning process for the future of the area under the BQE Spacebuster created by the Berlin based architecture collective raumlabor berlin is designed to temporarily occupy open urban spaces such as squares parking lots and green spaces with a primary function to serve as a location for community events Join the Partnership under the BQE to submit your ideas for short and long term physical improvements temporary or permanent programming ideas or anything that will enhance the space which has long been regarded as an eyesore in the community The event is free but space is limited so RSVPs are requested at www myrtleavenue org if you plan to attend SpaceBuster provides the perfect setting for this workshop allowing us to bring people together in the underutilized space at the center of this discussion explains Meredith Phillips Almeida the Partnership s Director of Community Development The pavilion itself is comprised of an inflatable bubble like dome that emerges from its self contained compressor housing and expands and organically adjusts to its surroundings like a highway overpass The material is a sturdy specially designed translucent plastic allowing the varying events taking place inside of the shelter to be entirely visible from the outside and likewise the exterior environments become the events backdrops This is the most recent project under the Partnership s Arts Enterprise Initiative a multi faceted program to establish the avenue as an access point to cultural activities for community members of diverse socio economic backgrounds Through efforts to bring public sculpture art installations studio art and creative street furniture elements to the public spaces and sidewalks of the district the Initiative aims to increase access to art for the entire community and to support small business by driving foot traffic to the commercial corridor Sponsored by Storefront for Art and Architecture the SpaceBuster will travel throughout New York City hosting various community events from April 17th to the April 26 th Founded in 1982 Storefront for Art and Architecture is a nonprofit organization committed to the advancement of innovative positions in architecture art and design As a public forum for emerging voices Storefront explores vital issues in art and architecture with the intent of increasing awareness of and interest in

Replies MARP will continue its very cool Myrtle Windows Gallery Exhibition and has extended a call for artists If interested you must act fast The application deadline is Friday February 13 M yrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership Seeks Submissions for Our Upcoming Myrtle Windows Gallery Exhibition Myrtle Windows Gallery MWG is an open air art gallery that breaks down the walls of the traditional private art gallery to bring two dimensional art to the public arena via the storefront window where it is accessible to anyone simply walking down the street Ten Myrtle Avenue storefronts temporarily transform part of their windows into gallery space for the works of local artists The initiative helps bring together artists local businesses and the community in a dialogue about art in public spaces Installation System The installation system serves to create a uniform look that unifies the exhibit and displays work in a way that does not damage the merchant s space or the work itself The system includes a solar shade to provide a clean backdrop for the artwork while maintaining light and view through to the interior of the shop A cable hanging system allows the artwork to hang in the window in front of the shade The Partnership will not provide insurance to cover the art during this exhibition however the artist has the option to secure his her own policy to cover theft or damage to the works while installed in the storefronts Eligibility and Selection Criteria MWG seeks ten 10 existing two dimensional works of art paintings prints photographs collage mixed media etc that can be easily installed in each of ten storefronts windows Preference will be given to local artists whose work captures or is inspired by urban life If the artist chooses to offer pieces for sale the Partnership will receive a commission on each sale to be negotiated with the artist prior to the exhibit Given that community accessibility is a key component of the mission of this initiative we hope to exhibit works at a broad range of prices Application Process The following materials must be received by Friday February 13 2009 at 5pm at Myrtle Windows Gallery 472 Myrtle Avenue 2nd Floor
