NEW YORK — La Superette transformed Front Street for three days, creating a temporary store that presented a huge selection of artist-made multiples from around the country. Running for over a dozen years, this event had a non-commercial goal: to support and distribute the works of independent artists and designers. La Superette also featured Rainbow Cloud City (an art installation created by the collaboration HappyFun, Erik Z., and Rachel Nelson), a free ScrapCycle gift-wrapping station by Analogous Projects, and a theme song by ATTN:.

La Superette was founded in 1998 by Tali Hinkis and Kyle Lapidus (LoVid) when they were students at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. The immediate huge success of the event carried La Superette all the way to NYC, where it has been hosted by many galleries and organizations.
