Art + Culture
October First Thursday
It’s the moment we’ve all be waiting for: the walls are built, the paint has dried, the work’s been hung. For DUMBO’s First Thursday Gallery Walk October 1, all of DUMBO’s amazing galleries will be open for business in their shiny spaces! We’ve got twelve galleries, four neighborhood spots, and the work of eighteen artists on display. Galleries will stay open ’til 9 – plenty of time to scope out new art and pop into one of DUMBO’s small shops. That’s right, beginning October 1, most retail in DUMBO will stay open until 9pm every Thursday for DUMBO After Hours!
And there’s more: Light Year is taking us on a journey from video art to VJing with a collection of videos that explore the dynamic relationship between contemporary video art, sonic art, live performance and cultural reflection. Projections start at dusk in Pearl Street Triangle and continue until 10pm.
Under the Archway we’re celebrating DUMB’Oktoberest with lager and sausage and a side of Sturm und Drang. We’ve got a #LiveAtTheArchway performance by the irreverent Opera on Tap, tasty eats by Landhaus, and of course, beer (+ wines, and bites) from The Lighthouse.
All events are open to the public; most events listed here are free.
