Art Scene Highlights

A non-exhaustive list of the best cultural experiences Dumbo has to offer.

Named by artists who moved here in the 1970s, Dumbo today is full of public art, galleries, performance spaces - and world class arts organizations that support and create some of the most significant works New York City has to offer. In this neighborhood, art aficionados and amateurs alike can immerse themselves in the Brooklyn arts scene.
