More than 400 Openhouse members and art fans came down for Streetwater’s Big Lobby Art show at 201 Mulberry St. The two-day pop up features gigantic art, the world’s smallest clothing collection, Time Out New York’s Most Creative New Yorker Borbay, signed Salvador Dali prints, a majestic wood and ash installation by Jeremy Holmes and plenty of other work.
Streetwater’s goal is to bring lobby art from the basement of the art-world’s eye to the penthouse. As Borbay put it to DNAInfo reporter Andrea Swalec, “People’s general conception of lobby art is that you get into an elevator and get elevator music and get out into the lobby and find lobby art, which can range from very good to stuff that looks like it was taken from a roadside hotel.”
Partners in Streetwater’s Big Lobby Art pop up include J Signs, KC Art Supplies & Framing, Mark Fahrer Catering, Oak Beverages and Party Up Productions. Until tonight at 10 pm, Openhouse is the dopest lobby around with work by more than a dozen artists. Come check it out and enjoy the photos from Solifestyle.com
