Mark your calendar, our favorite art event of the year begins this Friday, May 30 all throughout Bushwick:
Bushwick Open Studios (BOS) is a three-day arts and culture festival, hosted annually by the volunteer organization Arts in Bushwick (AiB). Now in its eighth year, this celebration of our neighborhood’s vibrant community and local art scene is free and open to the public. The festival dates are May 30th through June 1st, 2014. Open studios hours vary per artist, so check the directory for precise times. Most studios are open 12pm – 7pm on Saturday, May 31st and Sunday, June 1st.
BOS is New York’s largest open studios event, encouraging hundreds of artists to open their doors and share their work. Additionally, visitors can enjoy a series of events, performances, and panels, coordinated by AiB. Participating artists, spaces, and events are listed in the official BOS directory online, on our iPhone app, and in our printed map book.
In addition to the studio openings, there’s a launch party on Friday at Radio Bushwick, an electronic music showcase/dance party, and a mini film festival. Arts in Bushwick has a handy online map, and print versions will be available at various event hubs.
