The spirit of cooperation is alive and well in the Piedmont Triad arts community as evinced by two grassroots art exhibits this week in Greensboro. On Thursday, the project Spare Room will display the work of two UNCG art students. Spare Room is described as a project designed to foster dialogue across disciplines and provide space outside of the traditional gallery setting for emerging artists, makers and thinkers. The show will be held Thursday at 7:30 p.m. at the Smothers Place Lofts in downtown Greensboro. For further info, call 336.402.0061.
