Awesome. Reinventing the purpose of the city is a great thing to see keep popping up.

These vacant storefronts are windows of opportunity for our local artists. This project benefits the city because future business owners can see the possibilities. I've seen all the "New Museum" shows so far. People walking by seem real interested and think it really is a museum. Great job!
