The Space at the Heroin Stamp Project

Last night was the opening of the Heroin Stamp Project. The gallery was full, as was the sidewalk and street outside. It was very interesting to see the eclectic group of people who turned out to see a collection of heroin stamp bags blown up and on display. There were some statistics throughout about Hepatitis C (2 out of every 3 new cases of hepatitis C are a result of injection drug use) and the history of heroin in NYC. All, in all, it was a really clean show that eased a demographic into a NYC reality that they might not usually come into contact with. A portion of the proceeds go to our partner the Lower East Side Harm Reduction Center. It’s open until June 29th, so go, check it out and support. 329 Broome St.
