A Prelude to The Shed

A preview of what The Shed will have to offer is on view across the street from where The Shed is currently under construction. Prelude to The Shed is a free two-week sneak-peek that will run from May 1-13 and will showcase The Shed’s mission to support artistic invention, and present multiple art forms in one flexible space. We were there when the doors opened on May 1st. Here are a few photos.

Several informational stations-on-wheels were set up. This one was on The Fun Palace, a 1961 unrealized project by British architect Cedric Price, which has become a key reference for The Shed
