LITTER AND GLITTER

"Appendectomy Benefit" and "Bixel" at Locust Projects, Dec. 3, 2005-Jan. 4, 2006, 105 NW 23rd Street, Miami, Fla. 33127
One of the first galleries to open in Miami’s burgeoning Wynwood Art District was Locust Projects, an artist-run nonprofit exhibition space founded in a 1,650-square-foot, former Salvation Army storage facility in 1998 by Cooper, Westen Charles and Elisabeth Withstandley. Like many Miami galleries, Locust opened a new exhibition -- two shows, split between the gallery and a project space, as usual -- during Art Basel Miami Beach, Dec. 1-4, 2005.
