May First Thursday
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
DUMBO’s First Thursday Gallery Walk is May 4, and we’ve got your guide to the robust line-up of openings, performances and cultural activity right here!
This month, United Photo Industries has two interesting projects in the neighborhood with receptions on First Thursday. At their gallery at 16 Main, you can see the work of (and meet!) Jamel Shabazz, who has photographed New York City for almost 40 years, capturing the change in our city. This is his last public show for the year, so don’t miss it. And at St. Ann’s Warehouse, stop by to see an exhibit by Sarah Hickson, which captures lives she met at temporary refugee camps of Northern France. After you gallery hop, stop in to Superfine–they are hosting an exhibition of INSIDERS1, a local accessories brand with New York flare; show starts at 9pm.
Plus, projected onto the Manhattan Bridge, Light Year will present “coGalleries presents,” featuring the work of three emerging artists, all dealing with political and social issues. Projections start at 6pm 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!
