The Andrew Freedman Home was built in New York City's Bronx neighborhood in the early 1920's as a retirement home for seniors who had fallen on hard times. At its height, the Freedman Home was a lavish and plush place to live with countless servants working around the clock to keep the place tidey. Today, the Freedman Home has fall in disrepair and currently serves as a worn down day care center and local event space. Recognizing an opportunity to transform the Freedman Home from a neighborhood eyesore to a source of pride, the non-profit No Longer Empty let top contemporary artists -- including Adam Parker Smith, Cheryl Pope, CRASH, Daze, How and Nosm, Jaime Rojo, Justen Ladda -- to run free and bring the home back to life with their own unique designs and creations, each taking a room for themselves. The opening reception to celebrate the transformation is scheduled for April 4th from 6-8pm followed by an after-party at the Freedman Home.
