Bushwick Open Studios 2013

Free admission (all visitors, all hours)
Arts in Bushwick is pleased to announce the seventh annual Bushwick Open Studios and Arts Festival. Bringing together a mix of visual artists, performers, musicians, designers, and the public, this celebration of creative expression is a cultural phenomenon, rooted in the heart of one of New York’s most vital arts districts. BOS ’13 will showcase more than 500 artist studios, dozens of group exhibitions, and a series of related events, in addition to one-of-a-kind programs for adults, youths, and families.
The festival kicks off Friday, May 31 at Shea Stadium BK, Bushwick’s leading DIY venue, with a blowout launch party; yet the heart of BOS will take place Saturday June 1 and Sunday June 2, when participants open their studios from 12-7 pm. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet the artists, press palms, and experience their inspired journey in motion. Detailed profiles of participating artists, including images of work, can be found in the artist directory at www.artsinbushwick.org.
BOS ’13 takes place over three square miles, including sections of East Williamsburg, Bedford-Stuyvesant and Ridgewood. Local businesses, storefronts, and galleries have joined forces with AiB to operate as informational “hubs”, or meeting points close to subway and bus lines that provide maps, promotional materials, and information about studios and activities, and a place to use the restroom or grab a drink. BOS ’13 hubs include Outlet Fine Art, Norte Maar, Moore Street Retail Market, Arts @ Renaissance, Outpost, 3rdeyesolations Art Gallery, Bat Haus, Wayfarers, English Kills, Loft 594, and Signal Gallery.
