Recess in Soho is now officially back online and open to the public. Thank you to everyone who supported us over the past week. We took in a couple of feet of water in the basement of our space over the course of the storm, but we were lucky that our ground floor was relatively untouched. Intercourse, where our Red Hook project space is located, is still recovering from major flooding. We will keep you posted with updates.
Our thoughts are still very much with those that are still feeling the effects of the storm.
For artists and arts organizations affected by Sandy, we wanted to pass along this note via Hyperallergic.
Artists affected by the storm: If your studio or gallery is flooded, the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works is on call.
