The Stranger’s art writer Jen Graves has the details on some new life in the old home of the Copper Vine. Welcome The Project Room to E Pine:
Yes! Jess Van Nostrand is creating The Project Room at 1315 E Pine Street, to open in July 2011.
It’s not just a gallery, it’s a conceptual center, “support[ing] works-in-progress by raising questions relevant to contemporary life. By asking a particular question over a specified period of time, TPR will present programming that that investigates and discusses this question from different points of view and through different creative disciplines,” Van Nostrand wrote in an email.
TPR will publish an online journal, and its website will be launched soon.
You can learn more about Van Nostrand at http://jessvannostrand.com/about/.
The Copper Vine went out of business in the space late in 2010.
