DUMBO Arts Fest is a whole new look at Brooklyn
The Brooklyn vs Manhattan cool culture war rages on. But no matter what side of the bridge locals’ hearts lie with, Dumbo’s waterfront visual arts explosion – aka, The Dumbo Arts Festival – gives plenty reason to cast and eye to Brooklyn Bridge Park’s waterfront come September 26th through 28th.
From floating wall mural barges to live music and light shows literally projected onto the Brooklyn Bridge, there’s never an artsier time to bring a blanket (and a camera) and prepare to stare in every direction from sun-up until the wee hours of the night.
Make a weekend of it and keep tabs on the daily schedule, walking tours, and artist lectures popping up as the event gets going.
