There are many reasons to celebrate Spaces, but chief among them right now is its recent debut in its new home in Hingetown in the former Van Rooy Coffee building. Occupying some 10,000 square feet, the new digs have allowed the organization to expand its programming schedule and art production areas and include a dedicated classroom for educational resources. The first exhibition, which featured works from three artists, was a powerful examination of civil rights, race and profiteering prisons, and made clear that while their address has changed, the gallery's programming remains steadfastly poignant and provocative.
