Over the last three years of living in Greenpoint I had the opportunity to meet a community of artists living and working in our neighborhood, creating works in all mediums and engaging in all sorts of public events, installations, discussions and engagements.

Last fall I organized the first Greenpoint Open Studios in an attempt to serve as a platform in which all social, creative, and collaborative interactions could take place, in the form of artists physically opening their studios doors to the public alongside exhibitions, performances, discussions and parties to continue the conversation.
Greenpoint Open Studios returns again this year and is slated to take place October 1 – 3. The weekend will highlight exhibitions in local galleries such as Greenpoint Gallery, a food-integrated roundtable discussion at Church of Messiah, an evening of outdoor festivities and installations courtesy Bring to Light, and a slew of other special events.

In order to make this happen, we need to raise funds. Part one of two fundraisers we are organizing will take place THIS SATURDAY at the site of North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition‘s India Street Mural Project, located on India Street between West Street and the East River. It will be a water balloon infused game of Dodgeball. Pay $10 for a raffle ticket which enters you in a game and one person from the winning team will have the chance to win half the money pot raised from tickets. The other half will go towards GOS.
Join our facebook group, browse through our website, and prepare to get wet!
