Tomorrow begins the DUMBO Arts Festival, which this year, as we previously reported, is introducing a re-worked version of its Art Village at DUMBO’s Tobacco Warehouse (26 New Dock Street, Brooklyn). The festival runs three days: Friday September, 28 – Sunday September, 30.
The primary way organizers will attempt to do this is through a new partnership with the Children’s Museum of the Arts that will offer a wide-range of family art projects, free-form activities, media workshops, and exhibits themed around the DUMBO Waterfront.
Here is a list of a few added programs and events:
A collaborative stop-motion animation project themed on the waterfront.
Theater by the Sea
Participants can build sets and a performance space with seats for a small audience.
Skyline String Installation
Collaborate on a string installation inspired by your surroundings.
Sewing Sea Monster
Sew and construct different materials to create a large sea monster. Make your own finger puppets to take with you to perform at home.
Borrow an art-kit, complete with paper, watercolor, colored pencils and charcoal and go off and get inspired. Kids will be allowed to display what they have made in a special gallery area.
Bike Decorating Station Look to trick out your ride? Decorate your bike using colorful string, tissue paper, beads, bells, recycled materials and tape – or bring your own fun materials.
For those who want a glimpse of what went down at last year’s festival, here is an informing video.
Over 200,000 visitors participate in the festival, which features work from over 500 artists, 100 studios, 50 galleries and stages and 100 programming partners. The official Festival hours are Friday 6pm to 9pm, Saturday 12pm to 9pm, Sunday 12pm to 6pm and sundown to midnight all three nights for all outdoor projections, said organizers.
