I went into the Arts section of the New York times to see what is new in the art world and hopefully gain some inspiration. I found something interesting. I will refer to them as DIY Galleries. Artists in London are taking vacant stores or homes to make a temporary gallery. Last month the government in Britain gave $5 million dollars to areas that had a large amount of vacant stores to make into showrooms for local artists. I think this is a great idea because people will be more hopefully if instead of seeing an empty boarded up store they see an artists gallery.
