New York City-based, non-profit arts organization, Chashama, has partnered with The Port Authority to establish a place for the city’s up-and-coming artists to show off their talent. A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place this morning, in celebration the Bus Terminal’s “Project Find” space, located on 9th Avenue between 40th and 41st Streets. Italian artist, Michelangelo Bastiani, will be the first to utilize the space for his installation, entitled “Beyond the Matter.”

“Beyond the Matter” features holograms reflected through LED screens in glass bottles, displaying some of Bastiani’s favorite subjects ranging from “soft clouds” to “tumultuous storms.” Bastiani’s work was previously displayed at Chelsea’s Ca’ d’Oro Gallery on 10th Avenue.

Chashama is an organization founded in 1995 in order to create affordable spaces for new artists. Since its establishment, it has re-purposed and revitalized more than 80 properties, and presented artwork created by over 15,000 artists. To learn more, click here.
