SITEUNSEEN made its Pontiac debut Easter Sunday, when our members descended on 527 Colorado Ave to aid in clean-up efforts and show our support for Convenience to Convene, a site-based project focused on repurposing an abandoned convenience store as an art and design studio to offer workshops and classes to the community.
In addition to some tremendous dumpster-filling fun, we hosted an on-site sculpture building using stacks of phone books from inside the structure, and members and friends displayed artwork at a pop-up gallery in the garage while we barbecued some food for artists and neighbors. Our goal was to heighten community awareness of this space as an artistic venue–a place of happenings–and provide Convenience to Convene a little sweat equity during their fundraising phase.
If you are interested in donating to their project or would like to see additional photos of the event, please click here to check out their website.
