Tomorrow night marks the opening of another great exhibit to inhabit the Brooklynite Gallery. Entitled "Go Get Your Shinebox," the exhibit portrays the effect that the current economic situation is having on people around the world from an artistic standpoint. The pieces center on the street "work boxes" that are often picked up as a means to accommodate odd jobs upon reaching rock bottom. With the help of 100 international artists, the gallery takes the notion of a simple means of making money, shoeshining, and allows a redefinition of how each artist pictures his or her own "survival box." Sure to be an intriguing and thought provoking exhibit, and also the last of the year for the Brooklynite Gallery, this is one you don't want to miss.
