We’ve talked about No Longer Empty’s installation, How Much Do I Owe You? before, and we’re delighted to tell you that the opening is tonight! This is No Longer Empty’s 14th site-specific exhibition, taking place on the first floor, basement (vault), and mezzanine of LIC’s Bank of Manhattan Building. We attended a preview on Monday and wanted to share with you want we saw; hopefully this will whet your appetite to check out this amazing exhibition/installation.
Ghost of a Dream – In Banks We Trust. Hundreds of bank slogans are handwritten on the walls here in this area below the stairs that go up to the mezzanine. Below is one detail that caught our eye, with the slogan “Dare to Dream.” You can also make out “a true liberator,” too.

No Longer Empty is dedicated to widening public engagement in contemporary art, promoting imaginative and socially conscious artists and demonstrating art’s capacity to revitalize communities. The nonprofit’s 14th exhibition, How Much Do I Owe You?, will adorn The Clock Tower, part of the iconic former Bank of Manhattan building in Long Island City. Twenty-six artists from 15 countries will display everything from sound installations to participatory projects to large scale sculptures. The three-month display will kick off with an opening reception this Wednesday, December 12, with special remarks by City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, the area’s representative and the chair of the NYC Cultural Affairs Committee.
