THE UNDERBELLY PROJECT

Photo and video stills borrowed from the NY TIMES

The Underbelly Project, which has been underway since 2009, finally released some images and its story to the New York Times yesterday on Halloween. The idea is brilliant and wish I were able to make the trek down there to experience it for myself.

There are 103 street artists participating in this project and untraditional super swag art exhibition that has been 18 months in the making.

From Jasper Ree's NY TIMES article: "Known to its creators and participating artists as the Underbelly Project, the space, where all the show’s artworks remain, defies every norm of the gallery scene. Collectors can’t buy the art. The public can’t see it. And the only people with a chance of stumbling across it are the urban explorers who prowl the city’s hidden infrastructure or employees of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority."
