Notes from March meeting
Re-Visioning Two Harbors’ March 24 community forum with speaker Erika Mock was fabulous! Mock spoke about her work organizing the Phantom Galleries project in Superior, WI. Accompanied by photos of gallery spaces and exhibits, she shared the successes, failures, and discoveries during her time with this successful partnership between artists, community, and businesses in Superior. Their “Phantom Gallery” exhibits included posting art in vacant storefronts to be visible by passing street traffic, and holding evening gallery exhibit times where patrons could stroll into these spaces to enjoy art and music. Many of the vacant sites hosting these Phantom Galleries in Superior were subsequently rented or sold.
Those present participated in a lively discussion with Erika after on ways the city of Superior WI has supported this venture; how Phantom Gallery Superior’s 5-year plan helped them maintain focus; what worked/didn’t work; and the energy/synergy that was generated as the community, business owners, artists, and the City worked together to create a program in Superior that helped them all. For those who missed the meeting, we made an audio recording, sharable upon request – email email@example.com for access to that. KTWH may also air a portion of Erika’s talk on the air.
