464 gallery to host mayoral meeting on the arts
464 gallery announced today it would host a town hall meeting on urban revitalization and the arts on Sept. 1 at 6 p.m. A release from the recently opened gallery says mayoral candidate Michael "Mickey" Kearns will attend the meeting, and that incumbent Byron Brown will drop by for half an hour.
It'll be curious to see what, if anything, comes out of the discussion. It's at least heartening to know that the two mayoral candidates, say what you will about their political agendas, have agreed to attend a meeting at a relatively little-known establishment in a low-profile neighborhood to talk about the arts. That's promising.
As for gallery owner Marcus L. Wise, his simple hope, as he wrote in the release, is to "make sure that art does not get left out of the process."
