Locals Leading the Last Hurrah for Boogies Building

‘Multi-media concept space’ includes clothes, gallery

The final, temporary tenant set to open in the Boogie’s space before it’s redeveloped is a retail, art gallery and event space collective that thrives on riding out the final days of a building before gentrification takes hold.

Artist Skye Weinglass, daughter of Boogie’s founder Boogie Weinglass, is curating the gallery. It will include about a dozen artists, both of the local emerging variety and more established practitioners from out of town. Being the last tenant in the space her father built is special, and a little sad, she said, adding she has long wanted to curate a gallery in the building’s upstairs, which was once home to the diner.
