I think City Realty has a great idea here. I hate how buildings that are being redeveloped just sit there dark and empty.

Hopefully, this program is successful and they can get other developers to follow suit.

Looking forward to checking this out. How did I not hear about this until now though?

I work for City Realty and have been working on pulling this program together. Sorry you hadn't heard about it yet. We are doing our best to get the word out!

We are working hard on pulling everything together but it isn't fully open yet and we're still working on planning and programming. We're going to do a more official kick off event sometime in June and be sure that we'll be doing a much larger promotional push.

In the meantime, if you want to stay up to date, check out our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/citypopegleston . It'll keep you up to date on all the happenings in the space.

Please help us spread the word!

I appreciate that somebody organizes this... however as an artist we really need customers to buy the art. They put this in a neighborhood where nobody spends any money on art!

Or are you just making racist, classist assumptions about the people that live here?

And it's going to have dance studios and so on. But really--you're arguing that artists should make their art in wealthy areas where the "buyers" are? Has that ever happened in the history of art ever?
