The inaugural SiTE:LAB event took place at 833 Lake Drive, a medical office building that formerly housed Network 180 and was soon to be redeveloped as the new home of LaFontsee Galleries. An estimated 2,000 visitors attended the one-night event, which featured over forty installations and performances created by over 100 student and faculty artists from local art colleges, and allowed LaFontsee to publicize its impending move. The event was coordinated with the East Hills Council of Neighbors and employed a variety of strategies to encourage viewers to visit businesses in the adjacent East Hills Neighborhood. The event also included an innovative video installation created by the local Red Cross to call attention to its mission and services.
