The DUMBO Improvement District is giving us yet another reason to be stoked for open-air entertainment.
Live At The Archway brings the neighborhood together, presenting a curated season of live performances and interactive art in a magical, only-in-Dumbo setting.
Our third season of Live at the Archway brought hundreds of happy DUMBOnians and visitors out every Thursday to experience the Archway come alive with music and art–from Cuban salsa, flamenco and New Orleans hot jazz, to Indie afrobeat, modern dance, psychedelic soul, J-Pop and yes, even a hula hooping circus!
This year, we introduced The Space Station, a pop-up gallery presented in partnership with DUMBO-based gallery TFNF. Each week, a different DUMBO artist exhibited their work, and invited the public to collaborate on an interactive piece wrapped around the outside of the gallery.
