LAND Gallery, a studio and gallery for adult artists with developmental disabilities, is leaving their longtime location in Dumbo.
Founded in 2005, the art space, currently located at 67 Front Street, recently posted a sign on the front door that says they are bidding farewell to the neighborhood.
Margot Werner, who works as an art therapist at LAND, confirmed the news. “LAND’s lease in Dumbo is up, and rather than paying almost double the rent, our agency (the League Education and Treatment Center) decided to use this time as an opportunity expand the program to serve up to 30 artists in a new larger location on the border of Clinton Hill/ Bedford Stuyvesant,” she wrote in an email to Brownstoner. “As we are nearing final arrangements nothing is written in stone. We are hoping everything works out as planned.”
