This year, we asked the Hyperallergic team to pick a few artists they deemed “worthy to keep your eye on” from their travals across the mega-swathe of Brooklyn and Queens known as Bushwick Open Studios (BOS).
There aren’t as many outskirts to Bushwick Open Studios as there once were. The 2013 edition was brimming even at the very edges of designated “Bushwick,” which really oozes over into the adjacent East Williamsburg and Ridgewood, though it seems steadfast in not stepping over the Broadway line to Bed-Stuy. It was in this area just north of the Broadway border that I set out to explore this past weekend, and where even if it’s only getting more developed, it’s still anchored by some more offbeat places to see and create art. A 48-foot tractor trailer, for one.
