Dumbo Arts Festival this Weekend

Come to Dumbo (Brooklyn) this weekend for the 11th annual Art Under the Bridge Festival, a veritable smorgasbord of open studios, performances, installations, and other artistic happenings! Things kick off today and cook all weekend (Sept. 28-30), day and night.

Jae will be participating in the open studios portion of the festival, and those who make the climb to his studio will be triply rewarded: he's sharing his space with Anders Bergstrom, whose work is also on view right now in our exhibition "Garbage Collection," and Temah M. who makes paintings on canvas and wooden clogs. (You may know her and her work from Shoe Mine down the street from Greenjeans.) A bunch of other 6th floor studios will be open, too.

Jae's studio is at 135 Plymouth St., #603. It's a short downhill walk from the F train at York St. and right next to Dumbo's beautiful waterfront parks. The studio will be open all day Saturday and Sunday, so come check it out!

I'm also looking forward to going out on the water taxi (which runs for free this weekend) to view the art installations along the river. Cool!

And I'll be checking out Seed Collective's sample sale at Rebar (147 Front St., near Jay St.). Radka, the woman who makes the crocheted gold wire earrings that I love to wear, will be there, so for those of you who've wanted to buy a pair for yourself, don't miss it!

The weather is going to be PERFECT this weekend, so get out there and see some art!
