The Percolator Artspace is looking for community members with photos, objects and experiences to share from the Social Service League’s alleyway trash bin.
The bin at 905 Rhode Island St. has evolved into a circular micro-economy and a gathering place for both the comfortable and the down-on-their-luck. It’s known as a prime spot to forage for interesting or useful things — and also a haven for leaving things someone else might want or need.
In a project he’s calling “Give Take Give,” Lawrence artist David Loewenstein is documenting the phenomenon. The Percolator, located next door to the thrift store at 913 Rhode Island St., is planning a related exhibition, book and series of events that will kick off in April.
Submissions for the show can be made to Loewenstein via email@example.com or dropped off at the Percolator, open from noon to 6 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, through April 21.
