Come to Sunset Park!
On September 8 & 9, the New York Art Residency & Studios (NARS) Foundation is teaming up with the Brooklyn Museum’s GO Project, a community-curated open studio weekend event taking place in neighborhoods throughout Brooklyn. There are over 50 artist studios to visit at NARS. Come check out one of Brooklyn’s most vibrant art scenes and VOTE for your favorite artists! Visit the GO website for more information: www.gobrooklynart.org
On Saturday, September 8th from 2- 4 PM, we will be celebrating the Go Project with an afternoon of special events. Join us for readers Ed Lin, Anelise Chen and Rahna Reiko Rizzuto, from the Asian American Writers’ Workshop, as well as a spoken word performance by Buendia, a local grassroots Sunset Park artists collective.
Visitors can also enjoy drinks from a set of exhibited ceramic clay vessels by Ming Yuen-Schat, and participate in a clay workshop for children and families with Veronica Frenning – both artists whose work appears in our newest exhibition, Interpreting Rituals: The Butterfly Effect. This exhibit, part of the five-borough Locating the Sacred Festival organized by the Asian American Arts Alliance, is an exploration of what is sacred in our contemporary society.
