Brooklyn-Based is a set of videos all including work from artists based in Brooklyn, and as part of the Leo Kuelbs Collection. Created specifically for the LIGHT YEAR program, Brooklyn-Based is designed to celebrate local artists and their contributions to the LIGHT YEAR program and the Brooklyn community as a whole.

LIGHT YEAR is an ongoing project presented by 3_Search (Leo Kuelbs Collection, Glowing Bulbs and John Ensor Parker) in partnership with the DUMBO Improvement District and NYC DOT. Originally created for the Manhattan Bridge Anchorage in DUMBO, Brooklyn, in celebration of the United Nations’ declaration of 2015 as the Year of Light and Light Art, LIGHT YEAR has become an international project, with presentations in DUMBO on the First Thursday of every month, as well as in Berlin, and online. Since its launch, LIGHT YEAR  has hosted the work of over 150 artists and curators from around the world.
