August First Thursday
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
DUMBO’s First Thursday Gallery Walk is August 3, and we’ve got your guide to the robust line-up of openings, performances and cultural activity right here!
This month, be sure to check out the pop up show at 68 Jay St Bar, curated by long-time DUMBO resident and artist Steve West, and stop by Usagi to see the sculptural results of two months of on-site work by artist Shu Ohno.
Under the Archway, there’s a free concert by Ghost Train Orchestra, which the New York City Jazz Record claims “There hasn’t been big band music as exciting as this since forever.”
Plus, projected onto the Manhattan Bridge, Light Year will present “Brooklyn Based,” a “best of” selection of videos by Brooklyn-based artists previously exhibited in Light Year.Projections start at 8pm in Pearl Street Triangle and continue until 10pm.
Galleries will stay open ’til 8pm – plenty of time to scope out new art and pop into one of DUMBO’s small shops and grab a bite at one of the neighborhood’s many restaurants and bars. And while you’re out, stop by Blanc and Rouge for their weekly wine tasting!
First Thursday is presented in conjunction with Art in DUMBO.
