Some Thoughts On 119 Gallery
by Derek Fenner
April 10, 2012
119 is Walter and Mary Ann
119 is where art belongs
119 is what YOU make it
119 is a place you break bread and boundaries
119 is NOT a gallery/performance space; it is a community center
119 checks ego at the door
119 glorifies expression and communication
119 is all of us
119 is a place to join in the struggle to survive
119 is a venue of workers united in play
119 is a continuum where time never fails.
How can time fail?
119 is people unrestrained
119 is NOT the dominant narrative type
119 is TRANSFORMATIVE through the creation of (a) shared story
119 says, “Don’t save the arts. Save the World with the arts.”
