Commend is the gravitational center of the RVNG universe. It is an inner space within the outer space that is downtown Manhattan. In the spirit of this historical neighborhood – and responsive to its evolving symmetry – Commend supports a community(/ies) of artists and craftspeople by offering mindfully selected items and ideations accompanied by purposeful editorial, placement, and events. Commend will house limited offerings made specifically with the space and the people who praise / graze there in mind. Connect, communicate, commend.
