For the first time in the history of art spaces it was not the space that held up the paperwork. It has been a long week of fine print, contracts, insurance papers and meetings. We finally did today what we were ready to do Monday - we paid the deposit and got the keys.
None of this would have happened without the incredible outpouring of support from all corners of the community. We raised enough funds for the deposit and NIMBY wrote the biggest check ever - for 10 more years of giant art, crazy events, and broken machines. A great thanks to all of you for making this possible.
The pack up at old NIMBY is almost complete. We are commencing with moving containers and yes we can use your help. We are still collecting donations to finance the move itself - if you have not yet lent your support to this gargantuan endeavor its not too late to be a part of making it happen.
We will be celebrating Christmas at the new location.
Here is a view of the new location at 8410 Amelia Street, East Oakland
