In an effort to flight blight many cities are turning empty downtown storefronts into installation spaces for art. The Downtown Berkeley Association started this program and it has been a success. So much so that they have “lost” many of the empty storefronts to new businesses. In any case, it is a win win for the artists and the association alike. Many participating artists have sold pieces that commuters saw in the window. All artists must live or work in Berkeley.
