On most days, the vacant lot at 44 NE. 29 St. next to Morgan’s restaurant in Midtown is nothing more than a patch of grassy land with an abandoned old rusty trailer.
Not this month.
Since Jan. 28, the property has been re-purposed as an open-air, pop-up gallery as part of a national project to promote emerging artists, just in time for the Second Saturday Art Walk.
“I loved the idea of using an available space,” said Meaghan Kent, director and chief curator for site95, a nonprofit established last November to present exhibitions in temporary urban locations. The Wynwood exhibit is site95’s first.
