Think Tank 3 in Greenwich Village

This is sort of a bit o’ nonsense post as it just shows the front of a store that I found mildly interesting.

The place is called Think Tank 3.  It seems to model itself as a new type of advertising agency.

The sign to the left describes the place.  It says “Think Tank 3 is A MODERN DAY THINK SHOP; our idea of what a modern ad agency should be.  We work with a range of clients including Comedy Central and Coca Cola.  From  time to time our creative director also curates exhibits based on cultural relevance, historical value, and quality.  Recently we hosted a reading of Sam Shepard’s A LIE OF THE MIND, directed by Ethan Hawke.  Some of the pieces you see represent our last four exhibits and if you’re interested in the art or the artists we can connect some dots for you.  The exhibits were:  FOUND SOUND by Gaines, THOUGHT FOR FOOD by Ilana Simons, JEWISH BOXERS by Charles Miller, and SADDAM MANIA by Teun Voeten.  Try the door, and if its unlocked come on in.  Some things are for sale and some things are not.  Don’t worry, if you can’t tell which is which, we’ll let you know.  You’re welcome to sign our guestbook so we can send you e-mails about upcoming events which will also be posted about upcoming events which will also be posted here as they’re conceived, confirmed, etc.”

The exhibit apparently went through March 31.

There are some clever bits to it.

But the only part I really liked were the Etch-a-Sketches.

Very nicely done.
