I am very pleased to announce my participation in this year’s GO Brooklyn Art Open Studio program. My studio will be open from 11am until 7pm this Saturday and Sunday ( September 8th and 9th ) at my Sunset Park studio within the historic Brooklyn Army Terminal.
About the Brooklyn Army Terminal
The Brooklyn Army Terminal is large complex of piers, docks, warehouses, cranes, rail sidings and cargo loading equipment on 95 acres (380,000 m2) between 58th and 63rd Street in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. During World War II, the terminal was responsible for shipment of 85% of army equipment and personnel overseas; 38,000,000 tons of supplies and over 3 million soldiers. The building was sold to New York City in 1981 and was then totally renovated. It is now home to dozens of light manufacturing, silkscreening warehousing business, as well as artists studios organized and maintained by Chashama.
Chashama supports communities by transforming temporarily vacant properties into spaces where artists can flourish. By recycling and repurposing buildings in transition, we invest in neighborhoods, foster local talent, and sustain a vast range of creativity, commerce and culture. Chashama is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
Chashama was founded by Anita Durst in 1995 because her life was transformed through art and creativity, and she wanted to give people the opportunity to experience similar enlightenment. Through chashama’s unique programming, we literally unlock and open the doors of unused spaces across the 5 Boroughs, making thousands of square feet available to hundreds of artists of all levels, ages and mediums annually.
As always, thank you all for your continued support and I hope to see many of you there this coming weekend! Until then, here are a few sneak-peeks of the Brooklyn Army Terminal as well as some shots of my studio space…
