ART, ICE CREAM AND BLUE JEANS IN LINCOLN HEIGHTS

If you blinked you missed it! Kasil Art Gallery opened on Broadway last month but it's days were numbered. Organized by Sevin (formerly Martha Riley) of the Lincoln Heights Neighborhood Council, and space donated by the generous owner of Kasil Jeans upstairs, the gallery was a great space for our local young artists.

Looks like an Ice Cream Shop is opening in its place sometime soon, just in time for Winter. Hopefully they can compete with Rite Aide!

  2. It was Known as Kasil Gallery but it has grown into the LINCOLN HEIGHTS COMMUNITY ART GALLERY Directed by Moncerrat Reyes and the Residents of Lincoln Heights who along with the youth Volunteer to keep the space open and full of activity focused on creating a safe space for the youth and it's community members.
    Everything was made possible by the generous owner David Lim (creative designer and owner of Kasil Jeans) who donated this community-space to Lincoln Heights and its Residents, where art classes and art shows will continue to flourish thanks to the hard work of Moncerrat Reyes, Luis, Vince and countless of youth volunteers.
    The Ice-Cream Shop was a gift to the wife of the person who is renting the space from the owner(David Lim)as a surprise- a romantic gesture that may create a meeting space for the young and old, a place to share a shake.
