NORTHSIDE OPEN STUDIOS is a four-day art festival celebrating a burgeoning art scene in Greenpoint and Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It is a collaborative effort between artists, organizations, and businesses to build a creative platform in which all members of the community can foster and contribute to a support system to share ideas and relationships. As artists’ studios and exhibition spaces continue to emerge in the neighborhood, our goal is to facilitate the support and growth of a thriving art community.
The main event of Northside Open Studios occurs June 18th & 19th where over 150 participating artists will be opening their studios to share their artistic practice, providing an in-depth and unique experience that incites dialogue and harvests community.
In addition to artists opening studios throughout Williamsburg and Greenpoint curators, organizations, and local businesses are hosting myriad exhibitions and events throughout the area. Whether it’s a show about hardware, live mural painting on the street, an exhibition dedicated to Burt Reynolds or a Bikini Reading Series, there’s no telling what you’ll expect during this four day art extravaganza. Check our events page for more.
The NOS team has also produced four special events during each day of the festival including a panel discussion, a screening, a street festival, and a group exhibition of participating artists followed by a launch party. Each attached flier features our general flier and individual special event. The celebration will be non-stop so free up your calendar and join us!
NOS maps and programs will be available at our hub spaces and downloadable from our website.
