November First Thursday

October 5
6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Our First Thursday Gallery Walk is November 2, 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 mural installation by CAM at the newly opened FireLight Studios, and stop by United Photo Industries for a behind-the-scenes look at Hamilton in photos.

Plus, projected onto the Manhattan Bridge, Light Year will present “Identity 0.0,” a collaborative video and sound program exploring the changing meanings of “self” and “individuality.”

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.
