Such is the case with last night's gallery opening at the beloved Museum of Reclaimed Urban Space, on Avenue C.
The show was titled: "Taking It To The Streets! The Art + Design of Posters and Flyers on the Lower East Side in the 80s + 90s".
I got there just in time to be the first — and for a while, the only — person in the room!
At least I was able to get pictures of the posters:
|Posters on the wall.|
…stencil paintings on the floor:

…signs on the back wall:

…and a cardboard tank, which I think is part of the permanent exhibit:

I stayed for about twenty minutes, thinking more people would show up, but no one did, so I went outside and sat on the bench and read the show's Playbill.
Fortunately I ate at home before attending, because there was no food — not even beer!
How do you reminisce about the bad old days without beer?!
