Ah Bushwick! The hip, self-sufficient subculture of art at the outskirts of Brooklyn is teeming with energy, ready to explode at the end of the week with the 8th iteration of Bushwick Open Studios. Continuing with it’s upward trend, the experience is set to be a fitting celebration of Brooklyn art culture. This year marks a send off for many of the spaces that will soon close at the 17-17 Troutman building, all of whom have been asked to close their doors. Hopefully the celebration will do justice to their varied contributions to the neighborhood.
Come ready to celebrate. The program this year includes an opening party, a community day, an electronic music showcase, and a cinema showcase along with the closing party on Sunday. The experience spans a giant swath of blocks throughout the neighborhood and spills forth a good distance into Ridgewood. You can’t see it all, but we encourage you to try as the event seems to keep getting better and larger each year. Just make sure you take some time to plan your route beforehand. We’ll see you there!
