For the third consecutive year, Crest Hardware on Metropolitan Avenue in Williamsburg will transform into an art gallery for an exhibition that will run from June 19 through July 30 and feature “hardware-inspired” artwork from over 120 artists.
On June 19th, the 10,000 square foot space will host Crest Fest, an all-day-long opening party with performances by Oberhofer, Motel Motel, The Sundelles, Darlings, Zongo Junction and Wizardry, and DJ sets by DJ Teenwolf, Petey Complex and Nich Catchdubs among others. Proceeds from this year’s show will benefit Williamsburg’s City Reliquary Museum and Civic Organization.
Crest Hardware was opened in 1962 by Manny Franquinha, whose son Joe is the store’s current manager and the organizer of the art show. Not exactly a common backstory for most Williamsburg businesses, but an inspiring one nonetheless.
