Get ready to get busy for the spring because this year’s Bushwick Open Studios dates have been announced. From May 31st-June 2nd, the city’s curators, critics, and curious will set eyes on Bushwick, and last year’s BOS was its biggest yet; there was even Bushwick Basel, the neighborhood’s first art fair. We here at AFC and The L Magazine will be out there, too. Last year, AFC profiled over a dozen artists in the weeks leading up to the event, spotlighting the neighborhood’s emerging artists.
Let’s just say if you’re at all serious about being an artist and you live in Bushwick, you’ve got to take part in Bushwick Open Studios.
But you’ve got to register first, and you’ve got to attend a Bushwick Open Studios’ mixers in order to do that. Thankfully, you can get all that administrative stuff out of the way this week instead of last minute.
This year’s first in-person meeting will take place this Monday, January 28th at 7 PM at the Bathaus Co-working Space (279 Starr Street, off the Morgan L). Registration for the festival will open on March 22 and close on April 24. As a reminder, if you’re registering with a group or a studio, only one person needs to attend a session. Now go do it!
