A Weekend of Art

We registered, we checked in, we learned, we voted! With our smartphones charged and itineraries plotted out, we hit Go Brooklyn Art  to meet alumni who were taking part in this weekend-long open studios event. It was a great opportunity to support those working in the arts and to hear about their work–what inspires it, how it’s produced, why it’s important. What made it especially great was playing a role, along with members of the community, in voting for artists to be nominated for a chance to be included in a group exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum. At the end of the day, there was a total of 147,000 studio visits to 1,708 artists and 9,457 nominations! From textile art to photography, it was amazing to zigzag across Brooklyn and explore the inspiring work of alumni. Here are some photos from our weekend:
