FREE STORE opens tonight

Just saw this on PSFK. The FREE STORE exhibit runs through March 22nd at a temporary gallery space located at 99 Nassau Street (between Fulton & Ann Streets).

The exhibit opens today. Created by artists Athena Robles and Anna Stein, the space is a "cultural pop-up shop, functioning through bartering and exchange and allowing visitors to give something useful or get something useful. The store is the first Global Free Store and will accept and offer World Bills, a global currency, for everyday items brought in by the public, such as a map, clothing or a bag. The store will carry one or two stocked items that are produced in-house. Free Store will also feature special projects and events by curators Felicity Hogan, Edwin Ramoran, Julie Sengle and Herb Tam." Check it out if you're in the area.

  1. Just passed the store today, looks a little too high end to be a swap meet store. Unless they're trying to make it so trading your crap for someone else's crap will become an upscale hipster past time. Sound like something the whole yuppie hippie community should eat right up.
