As promised, below is the link to Grand Rapids, MI. based band The Outer Vibe's new music video "like A Diamond", filmed in Art Alley and the Badlands...
We wanted to open up some dialog about an incident that happened in Art Alley last week.
Although we encourage everyone at every skill level to experience Art Alley as a tool for creative exploration, we recognize that this space exists because it adds a certain value to downtown, and our community. Sometimes it is tough to balance the two and find where to draw the line.
...other times, it really isn't that difficult.
Granted, neither of these images will appeal to EVERYONE, but there are two distinct differences that separate them. EFFORT and CLEVERNESS OF MESSAGE.
We decided to take the opportunity to open public dialog and bring up the question of how expression is maximized, and we took it directly to the place where the question was raised in our minds. We first buffed the vandalized piece (mostly because of the amount of obscenities that were involved) and then we posted these three bills in its place...
