“Art under the Bridge” in DUMBO This Weekend

The DUMBO Arts Center presents its thirteenth annual Art under the Bridge festival, beginning tomorrow evening, September 25, and continuing through Sunday, September 27. According to DAC’s press release:

The three-day multi-site neighborhood-wide event is a one-of-a-kind art happening: where serendipity meets the haphazard and where the unpredictable, spontaneous and downright weird thrive. The now teenage D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival® presents touchable, accessible, and interactive art, on a scale that makes it the nation’s largest urban forum for experimental art.

Art Under the Bridge is an opportunity for young artists to use any medium imaginable to create temporary projects on-the-spot everywhere and anywhere, completely transforming the Dumbo section of Brooklyn, New York, into a vibrant platform for self-expression. In addition to the 80+ projects throughout the historical post-industrial waterfront span, visitors can tour local artists’ studios or check out the indoor video_dumbo, a non-stop program of cutting-edge video art from New York City and around the world.

Locations and times of the various art projects can be found here. Many DUMBO based artists will be opening their studios to visitors. A list of these artists and their studio locations is here.

    “(TimeOut NY), The Ball has been the Nation’s Biggest Jewish Singles Event 14 years in a row!”

  • judy and eddie

    well you know the ball is by choice in Manhattan.. not planned as a neighborhood event.

  • just saying

    the point is that its planned on a religious holiday, and has a huge turnout nonetheless.

    Is this message thread going to be turned into another series of complaints alleging anti-Semitism? As I seem to recall, the Atlantic Antic usually occurs on the last Sunday of September. It would have been far more problematic if that event had not been rescheduled. Forget about the stupid little festival on Montague Street that nobody attends anyway.

    I hadnt intended to be anti-semetic, as I am jewish, I just meant to say things overlap in this world, I am sure the organizers didnt do it on purpose to offend Jewish people.

  • In the Heights

    The point it though, that we all need to be culturally sensitive when we can.

    I’m not sure how anyone could be offended by a Jewish singles event on Christmas Eve?

  • sue

    i am offended by how often it is spelled wrong in these posts. It is anti-semItic.

  • The Where

    Anyone of you whiners actually go to this art show?
