Now after spending several thousand dollars and hundreds of hours

Almost the entire Work of S.N.A.F.U is currently in NY.
Cynthia Von Buhler has given me permission to safely park the work

I am looking for a secure space, of about a thousand square feet that
I would have acces to for about a month.

at the door, and generating some cash for for the owner of the space.
