Since the announcement that Jeffrey Deitch would take over as director of L.A.’s Museum of Contemporary Art, we’ve been wondering just what impact the closing of his Soho gallery, Deitch Projects, would have on the ‘hood, and the New York art world more generally. Here’s one thing we’ll really miss, especially amidst all the advertising in Soho: the murals and installations that Deitch artists regularly created on the gallery’s façades. Here, then, culled from the gallery website, are all the Deitch Projects façades from 1996 to the most recent, following the death of Dash Snow in 2008.
