GO: the Open Studio Weekend sponsored by the Brooklyn Museum
was a huge success in Crown Heights
Those who participated in GO, saw local artist’s work, participated in community building and helped to put our neighborhood on the art radar!!!
Even if you weren’t able to make it out in person, you can still get a feeling for what some of your neighbors are making by reading these posts:
We had great pre-game press from I Love Franklin Avenue:
- GO-files – Crown Heights Artists: Nina Meledandri, Erin Gleason, and Sarah Hall
- GO-files: Brian Knauer, Joseph Bolton, Ian Pawelec, Rebecca Potts, and Paula Overbay
And a fabulous post-game write up featuring a number of Crow Hill artists; from the art blog: Hyperallergic: GO Crown Heights: Away from the Hype
You can watch a great animation which explains how “GO” works: GO video
The museum will have neighborhood coordinators throughout Brooklyn during the open studio weekend. You’ll be able to stop in at any of these information spots to get a map and talk to GO staff about how to get started. Some venues are even providing specials!
Our coordinator; Victoria Cho, will be at Lily & Fig (727 Franklin Avenue)
on Saturday 11am – 6:30pm & Sunday 11am – 4pm.
Go weekend special: Free coffee with purchase of any baked good.
