The Chelsea Project – October 2, 2008

Posted on Thursday, October 2nd, 2008

The Chelsea Project showcases a series of unique public installations in Chelsea that are designed to enliven the area and involve its residents. The works are inspired by the neighborhood’s past and present, as well as its future prospects. In particular, they examine the complex, heterogeneous architectural history and the diverse social and economic conditions of the neighborhood.

The aim of the Chelsea Project is to foster a connection between the Chelsea art gallery district and its neighboring residential communities by allowing residents to see their neighborhood in a new light and discover treasures that had previously been neglected or overlooked.
