What's He Building In There?

The downstairs is slowly being transformed. Artist Greg Haberny keeps waving at us as he passes by the desk on his way to our basement. Cardboard? Old toys? Is that... the head from a bunny costume? We're not completely sure how Greg's new installation piece is going to end up, but we know that we're really looking forward to this Friday. And we think you should be too.

Already Greg is getting some advance press. Animal New York has taken notice of Greg's in-progress installation, saying:
Greg Haberny unfolds a story board of our national pastime – mid-recession survival – with part movie sets/part art installations, plus a load of mixed media work spanning two floors for his upcoming exhibition at Like the Spice.

and we have to admit, they're on the money. We're also pleased with the nod that came from Brooklyn Street Art and we're glad that Greg is already getting some press, even before he's finished installing!

The images in this post are examples of Greg's previous works, because the official opening of our two level show is on April 16th. However, Greg's been work hard on our downstairs area, so we want to show that off a little early! Our special pre-opening comes on Friday, April 9th, right here at Like the Spice. Clear your schedule to see this ultra-advance sneak at Greg's installation. Then head here to read a little more about Greg and the upcoming April 16th opening night!

We've already been dazzled by him. You should come be dazzled too. Join us on April 9th and see The Homeless Boys Social Club.
