21st Precinct One Year Anniversary Show Was Poppin’
Outlaw Arts Space hosted the 21st precinct anniversary show recently and we fortunately had a chance to stop by. Featuring works from Rambo, Curb Yo Ego, Cash4, Phil, Net, Adam Dare, Ghost, Samo and many others the show was a can’t miss event.
The music was a mash up of Motown with a few hip hop hits and the crowd mainly consisted of hip adults in their mid twenty to early thirties (most likely due to close proximity to “Nolita”). Some of the pieces present were also on display at the original structure that housed the 21st precinct show such as the Rambo Scarface piece and the doors. There was also footage from the original show that played by the entrance of the gallery. Right outside of the gallery, on the side walk, there was a small party (similar to the party at the original show) where some writers, artists and show goers got together, chilled and danced.
The 21st precinct, which was located at 327 East 22nd street in Manhattan, previously served as a police precinct and at another time also served as a halfway house for transgendered teens. It was demolished last year to make way for condominiums.
