“To Let” is a collaborative community project that invites landlords to temporarily donate the use of unrented retail spaces to the program and engages artists to create installations in storefront windows. (more info: http://toletartprogram.blogspot.com/)
Organized and curated by The Working Relationship, sponsored by the Downtown Ithaca Alliance, and supported by local landlords, “To Let” features projects by local, regional and national artists. The first round of to Let presents works by SP Weather Station (Natalie Campbell, Heidi Neilson & Daniel Larson), Jessica Evett-Miller, Lindsey Glover, Roman Hrab, M. Michelle Illuminato, Paul M. Nicholson, Tom Oberg and others. Projects include the “Weather Metabulator,” using real time weather data to create output using an adapted, vintage medical device; “A Plastic Garden” turning cast-off materials and donated plastic flowers into a growing diorama; “Night and Day” using sound and images of surveillance to investigate privacy in public spaces; and “Colonial Left” displaying objects of the Colonial style to question their meaning in our lives.
The SPWS Weather Metabulator is on view in the 208 E. State Street storefront.
