Street artist Fumero painted the gates of Le Salon d’Art

For the last couple months, commercial real estate listings have been passed around hawking the Le Salon d’Art space at 90 Stanton Street. The artsy chop shop is no longer for sale, since management had decided against it. However, in an interesting twist, we are told that the neighborhood spot was approached by Aveda to be an exclusive Aveda Salon.

The transition is already underway, but won’t have an effect on the “core philosophy” of the space. They’re working with the beauty school in SoHo, and will also carry the branded products. That indie flavor at the intersection of art and hair will remain, despite the corporate takeover.

On Thursday, twenty-six local artists will pay tribute to Keith Haring by “surrounding six of his original artworks with their own.” After the obligatory opening party, “Haring Lives … An Homage to Keith Haring” will be up through April 28.

That said, Le Salon d’Art is seeking a partner in order to “regain some much needed capital.”
