Howl! Happening Gallery Opens in East Village

arturovegaSandwiched between Extra Place — where bands once unloaded equipment through CBGB’s back-alley door—and the Bowery, a new art space,  Howl! Happening supports emerging artists and salvages some of that old-school, East Village sense of community.

“There’s an attempt at remembering, an attempt at continuing this vibe,” Bob Holman, Bowery Poetry Club founder, said. “It doesn’t just start with punk, of course. The Bowery itself was the street of populous art. That’s why I wanted to put The Bowery Poetry Club here, and that’s why the New Museum is here. There are elements of the Bowery and its relationship with art, and Howl! Happening is one of the great signs that even in 2015, it continues.”
