A centerpiece of this year’s family programming will be the DUMBO Waterfront , with fineart and media workshops based on the water, the park, and the carousel. A carousel-makingworkshop will take inspiration from Jane’s Carousel,

This year, AT&T will again sponsor a Signature Art Work – following its 2011 cornerstone piece by Carl Skelton and Luke DuBois – as well as present the second annual AT&T Audience Choice Award, an app-enabled audience-only vote.
