Three months ago paper covered floor and windows. One electrical outlet ran our lunchbox record player, boiled water, sucked in fresh air. Gus and Paige Powell tried numerous times to have coffee at our shop, during the building stage, one night even offering to help us paint. Our largest obstacle however, were the blank walls. That night we all went back to our homes to find artwork.
For the last two months our space has been graced with photos by Paige of Bosquiat and Warhol, by Gus Van Sant of a performance piece done by the Zoobombers and Bodyvox, and works by Cailin Carlile. Last night we threw a party celebrating both the artwork and artists, Courier’s opening, and everyone who made our opening possible. Everything is absolutely fantastic.
