Artists for Ferguson at Temporary Agency Gallery.

It was one night event and I installed my “POKETTOS” with staple guns.  Temporary Agency Gallery is supported by Chashama, nurtures artists by transforming unused property into work and presentation space.  http://www.chashamaarts.org.  I liked the atmosphere of the gallery, organized by four young female artists who all have met at Hunter College.
