An affordable art fair is taking over a large number of commercial advertising displays across East London for a fortnight to create an outdoor art exhibition.
The Affordable Art Fair is running the campaign, Art Without Walls, which will be reusing spaces that would normally house adverts to exhibit original artwork from independent galleries across the country.
The art will also be for sale, with 100% of the proceeds going to the art industry.
Five bars in the area will be part of the trail, as it is being supported by a well-known brand of alcoholic drinks, who are providing the advertising spaces for the art exhibition.
The outdoor exhibition will run from today to 27th June.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
