As you may heard, AiOP 2011 artist, Leon Reid IV , made an amazing presentation to the NYC Community Board 5 to allow the execution of his project, Tourist-in-Chief, for the upcoming festival in October. L magazine followed this story intently, raising questions about securing permits for public spaces. Leon shared with us what happened during the meeting
Another full board meeting will commence on September 8. We encourage you to attend and support Leon. During the festival Art in Odd Places will present a panel discussion on October 8, Pseudo-Public Space to discuss this matter. Art in Odd Places supports Leon Reid IV 100%.
