Descending upon a lonely window in the Fashion district is a loner clown with a vision to build a tower to heaven... or at least the ceiling of this storefront. Come and pass by the imnotlost Performing Installation at chashama 266 w 37th st on SATURDAY AUG 2 and/or SUNDAY AUG 3 from 3 - 6pm. Bring a picnic. hang out. walk back and forth. Free viewing from the street will draw you into the mastermind of this facetious carpenter.
chashama nurtures artists by transforming unused property into work and presentation space.
chashama partners with landowners, receiving in-kind contributions of real estate that are converted into highly subsidized studios, galleries, event and performance venues that artists at any stage of their career can afford.
chashama has championed the movement to repurpose unused properties into spaces where creativity, artistic innovation and culture can flourish. With duel expertise in navigating the real estate, leasing and development industry, and in meeting the needs of artists and the creative community, chashama’s spaces redistribute New York City’s untapped resources.
By making use of real estate-in-transition, chashama brings culture, new audiences, economic activity, increased foot traffic to local businesses, and life to surrounding areas. This combination has made chashama a major force in the now vibrant creative-placemaking movement.
