Saturday, May 20, 2017 and Sunday, May 21, 2017 - 1pm to 6pm
There are certain rites of spring that define the season – the blossoming Cherry Esplanade at BBG, the return of ice cream cones and rose wine, and for the artists and patrons of the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition spring time signals a fresh new season of art shows and performances. Rites of Spring, where light-filled airy galleries are loaded with images of rebirth and renewal from over 150 artists; Wide Open 8, a national juried show selected by MoMA assistant curator, Cara Manes, with 120 pieces in all media chosen from over 1500 submissions; Recycle 2017, juried by Harriet Taub of NYC’s Materials for the Arts, which has introduced many of our visitors to the new re-use genre. 65 pieces are exhibited.
Special events are planned for every day of the show – including the Sunday performance series, and Saturday reading series, which aims to celebrate and savor the wondrous variety of Brooklyn-based wordsmiths.
