Taking advantage of vacant storefronts and buildings, No Longer Empty organizes art events to breathe life into fallow spaces. The non-profit group opens an art exhibition this weekend at the former Brooklyn belt factory that birthed the â€œInvisible Dogâ€ gag for which the show is named. One of many featured artists reflecting on the history and setting of the space, Tom Sanford painted this mural, titled â€œL&L Taxi (Motherless Brooklyn),â€ in reference to the taxi and detective agency of Jonathan Lethem’s novel, fictionally located on the same block. â€œInvisible Dogâ€ opens on October 3rd from 6 to 9 PM at 51 Bergen St. in Cobble Hill.
