Another local DIY space is down on its luck.
The Glove, a multimedia art gallery, theater, and concert venue on the border of Bed-Stuy and Bushwick, closed down temporarily last month because it had trouble paying the bills.
The DIY space has since set up a GoFundMe campaign with a $10,000 goal to help it get back in business and pay down debts incurred during the shutdown.
“We’ve made plans to solve all of these problems, and the Glove will re-open, with nary a difference in how we do things; very soon we will be able to bring you high quality Glove programing for many times to come,” the campaign said.
“With your help we can continue to serve our community of artists, performers, musicians, freaks, punks, kids, adults, folks, travelers, locals, and aliens free of debt and with a new lease on nightlife.”
The news comes as more DIY venues in Bushwick and the surrounding neighborhoods are closing down because of heavy financial burdens.
