The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC)’s LentSpace program noticed that there is empty space for art in the city's financial district. The artwork shown in these vacant lots is a short-term installation, but it could certainly spark an idea that's more permanent.

The LentSpace art is meant to attract visitors to these interesting areas tucked between large buildings. Using empty space for art is a great way to remind pedestrians of New York City's rich tradition of arts and culture. LentSpace also brings art to the people in their environment, without the hassle of a trip to the museum.
