This weekend is the last chance to catch the art world’s invasion of a former New York police precinct.

For the past two months, 55 artists have been at work painting the interior of 327 East 22nd Street, the four-story building that once housed the 21st Precinct. The featured artists include Pesu Art, Giz, Ghost, Savior and Jay Carlos. The building is slated to be demolished to make way for a condo, but the show will be on view Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 23-24, from 1-6 p.m.
