I am very sorry to report that the arts and entertainment organization Gen Art has officially closed after 16 years. Gen Art Founders Ian and Stefan Gerard announced the news this afternoon, starting their email with: "It is with an extremely heavy heart that we are contacting you. After struggling for the past 18 months since the economic crisis, Gen Art has finally succumbed to the recession." A corporate sponsorship fell through a few weeks ago and Gen Art which has promoted and launched tons of young talent through thousands of fashion shows, film screenings and festivals, live music and art fairs, was left with no choice but to shut down. We will miss you Gen Art.
