Visitors will have the opportunity to engage directly with artists in their own spaces, including painters, sculptors, video and installation artists, photographers, printmakers, ceramicists, designers, architects and more.

The weekend festivities will kick off with a Launch Party on Friday, June 1 from 7:30-11:30pm at Java Studios (252 Java St), including an outdoor reception, gallery show opening, musical performances, live painting, performance art, installations, video screenings, and three floors of open art studios.

On Saturday, June 2nd and Sunday, June 3rd (12-6pm), over 400 artists will open up their studio spaces across the neighborhood. For self-guided tours, visitors can pick up a free GOS Guide with a map and schedule of events at any of the eight designated info hubs plus at various other locations throughout North Brooklyn. There will also be walking tours and free special events hosted by local businesses, galleries, and community organizations.

On Sunday, June 3 (6:30–11pm), we’ll wind down with a Wrap Party at Northern Territory, with beer by Founder’s Brewing, food, music, and a stunning rooftop view of the Manhattan skyline.
