This Friday, January 14, Williamsburg art galleries will be open late for art lovers and fans to crawl through the bodacious borough of Brooklyn’s hipster-est neighborhood on earth.
Dozens of art galleries and nonprofit spaces will be open from 6-8pm to ensure that you can wander around and discover new talent and art from some familiar faces. The area’s art scene caters to every taste, and it helps that the neighborhood is packed with great restaurants and bars for after-art festivities.
The event is organized by the Williamsburg Gallery Association, and you can stay up-to-date with the latest news about their activities via their Facebook group.
Here is a list of the area’s art galleries and some of our suggestions ( *** = must-see ) for art in the hood. We’ve also included some venues that we know will be closed for the night so you don’t waste you time while doing the rounds.
