A Round of Applause for the Go Brooklyn Art Team
GO Brooklyn Art, the borough-wide open studio weekend is finally here!
On September 8th and 9th, more than 1800 artists across 46 neighborhoods in Brooklyn will open their studios to share their work from 11am to 7pm.
Here is a pictures of the Go Brooklyn Art Team, including two organizers, one project coordinator, 22 neighborhood coordinators, many volunteers, staff across Museum departments, and the registered artists—have spent innumerable hours gearing up for this weekend — and they posed for this enthusiastic team picture.
The team members you see in this photo will be out in force visiting studios and offering support at their information spot this weekend. The organizers say that even the Brooklyn Museum’s Director Arnold Lehman (who is pictured in the front row, third from left), Chief Curator Kevin Stayton, and many members of their curatorial team and other departments will be visiting artists as well.
Yes, this GO Weekend is a tad overwhelming with 1800 artists from which to chose your visits, but remember, you only need to visit at least five studios to nominate artists for the exhibition.
Here’s some advice from the team: “If you are a voter strategizing how to make the most of the weekend, one tip would be to visit the artists in your own neighborhood and then choose another neighborhood to discover. Consider starting at our main meet point at Borough Hall, which will be open from 11am to 7pm on both days, or pick up a map at one of the 30 info spots throughout Brooklyn (hours vary).”
