August First Thursday
6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
DUMBO’s First Thursday Gallery Walk is August 4, 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 xxxx
Plus, projected onto the Manhattan Bridge, Light Year will present “This Land is Your Land” curated by Kyoko Sato. This month’s collection of videos examines the dynamism of diasporic communities, the history of violence against diasporic individuals, and the profane abuse of assaultive power that manifests in governmental policies against immigrant or “unwanted” groups. Projections start at dusk in Pearl Street Triangle and continue until 10pm.
Under the Archway #LiveAtTheArchway is bringing out Madame T and the Starlights, led by DUMBO’s own Tanya Rynd of Superfine fame. She’s presenting a set of whistle blowing train songs, sizzling summer swing and a journey of high camp performance that will make you want to dance and swoon! With beer, wine and bites from The Lighthouse and epic scenery below the Manhattan Bridge, it’s the place to be on Thursday nights.
Galleries will stay open ’til 9 – 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.
