This month's Dumbo First Thursday Gallery Walk includes participating galleries Amos.Eno, Safe-T-Gallery, A.I.R. Gallery, Umbrage Books, +Kris Graves Projects (whose artist Daniel Salemi's work is pictured at right), and many more. The coolest of these cool Dumbo art events sounds like the opening screening in Smack Mellon's new series Cinema 16, which pairs classic avant garde cinema and contemporary music, and opens at 7pm with a beer tasting before the show begins at 7pm.
