I respect the opinion of the previous post however, I thought the complete opposite. The statement i got from the exterior was of how art can have an aged, historical, contemporary/industrial feel to it. There's a Shepard Fairey mural on he front of it for god's sake. We are talking about an "art" gallery aren't we?
Part of it's uniqueness, was the fact that you entered into a concrete commercial warehouse with a facade of and old home in it. I can't tell you how many people i heard over the years express how "Cool" Eye Level Art looked, and that they never imagined the space being that unique when they crossed that "boarded up" door mentioned.
I have always enjoyed the diversity of experiences Mike Elder brought to the Mod Squad crowd of Charleston. Be it an art show, a movie in the grass in spring. a play, a concert, a Halloween Party, artist lock ins, Artist and Fleas, a company holiday party that blew minds, there was no shortage of thought inspiring experiences that Eye Level Art offered.
Let's face it folks.... businesses like these all have a life span. It always who's the new gallery? Who's the next music venue? Unfortunately, we all get a bit bored and move on to the next as they say.
I for one loved the experience Eye Level Art brought to my life. I have a much bigger appreciation for art, my walls are completely covered in work from there, and my knowledge of cutting edge bands and my music library is fatter from going to shows.
So all in all...........Great Job Mike Elder, rock New York, and thanks for all the fun.
