About

Sample / Draft
Sample / Draft

Trendy stores come and go . They look great when occupied with a business or tenant , but awfully meek and ugly when empty and not taking care off.

Our goal is to turn this transition from not rented to rented into a community ART project. We choose empty store fronts and create window installations that will enhance the overall look of the community and promote creativity . This project will add vibrant , colorful ART to the neighborhood by local artists like Carla Koulajian , Andre Miripolsky, Raton, Todd Williamson, Christine Zion, Joe Schmelzer, Matt Borkowski and Jonathan D Schulte.

The artists will be assigned to empty stores available, of which the front windows will be transformed into a public ART installation within 5 days . Once completed , each store front is going to be photographed and highlighted in an exhibition this fall.

WHERE:

Trendy shopping areas in Los Angeles are NOT losing its cachet, they are simply in transition to become even more beautiful. Even though a lot of the stores are vacant, despite drastic rent reductions, it sometimes does look a little meek around town , realizing that all the glamorous stores have either closed or moved and have left behind a rather "ugly" promenade of empty store fronts . 

In order to make this transition a bit more exciting , ARTSHOP has teamed up with local commercial real estate agents and landlords , and is starting to to use empty store fronts for ART displays until a new renters have signed a new lease . 

Everyone benefits from it :

- Provides an exciting new way to market vacant properties to potential tenants

- Increases pedestrian traffic to surrounding busainess

- Showcases vacant retail spaces in new ways, inspiring new users

- allows artists to showcase their work to exhibit their work

- Offers emerging artists the oppurtunity to exhibit their work

- Increases the presence of ART in the community

Very soon more ART will come to your neighborhood .
