Artspace to pull an all-nighter

Artspace Untitled (Space) Gallery
50 Orange St, New Haven, (203) 772-2709
Don't Know Much About History meets Coliseum Implosion
Closes Jan. 20, 2006

On Sat., Jan. 20., the Veteran's Memorial Coliseum in New Haven will be history. The implosion of the structure is slated for 7 a.m. By coincidence—if there really are coincidences—Artspace's Don't Know Much About History show will become history that same day. Don't Know Much About History was written about on Connecticut Art Scene here, here and here.

To celebrate the closing of the show and the Coliseum's demolition, the gallery will be open 24 hours, from Fri., Jan. 19, 8 p.m. through 8 p.m. on Saturday.

According to an Artspace press release:

We welcome the public to join us all night long for an evening of reflection on the Coliseum and history. We will be showing films over the course of the night, and a light breakfast will be served following the implosion of the Coliseum. Drop by with your friends and neighbors and join Artspace and residents of Ninth Square at a once-in-a-lifetime overnight party.

Free parking provided at the Shartenberg lot, on the corner of Chapel and Orange streets.
