HERE, the show Leslie Ferrin curated along with Ven Voisey and Jonathan Secor for MCLA's Gallery 51 opens during DOWNSTREET - a city wide series of art openings.

If you miss it tomorrow, there is an Artist Salon at the gallery, moderated by Leslie Ferrin Thursday, October 8 @ 6 p.m.. The topic of discussion will be based off the theme of the show "Here". How has the creation of art and art institutions changed the city? What influence have the institutions had on what art is made here?
