About Loiter Galleries
Our project’s goal is to aid to the responsible growth and evolution of the rebirth of Long Beach through art. Art is a powerful tool in the evolution of neighborhoods and cities. Too often artists are priced out of the very
neighborhoods they were responsible for improving.
The model’s purpose is two fold. It creates temporary galleries in available, vacant properties and serves to support local artists and their message, with a myriad of benefits for the property broker and owner.
This program and its artists, Monica Fleming and Vinny Picardi,
are well respected, award winning, vetted and progressive.
Both artists participated in the Phantom Gallery LA program here in
Long Beach. Whereby they created a pop up in a vacant store front in DTLB. It made the space much more desirable and created traffic.
That space is now leased.
