DUMBO’s First Thursday Gallery Walk is today, September 5 from 6-9pm. From the Dumbo BID:
This month, we’ve got art indoors and out, with the launch of DUMBO Walls, sponsored by the DUMBO Improvement District and Two Trees Management Co in partnership with the NYC Department of Transportation and the Jonathan LeVine Gallery. Using brick wall as a canvas, eight international artists — CAM, DALeast, Eltono, Shepard Fairey, Faith47, MOMO, Stefan Sagmeister and Yuko Shimizu — transform DUMBO’s streetscape into a vibrant mural destination.
All First Thursday events are open to the public; most events listed below are free. Local bars and restaurants also get in on the action: AlMar gives you a Peroni with an order of meatballs; Olympia Wine Bar offers $4 beer and $5 house wine, and Superfine features $3.50 select tap beers, $3.50 well cocktails and $3 Bud/Bud Light. Check out a full list of food and drink specials from neighborhood favorites like at DUMBO.is/Community.
Last but not least, we’re thrilled to announce that Jane’s Carousel has won the Red Tricycle Totally Awesome Award in the Best Parks & Playground category! The ride stays open ’til 7pm through Sept 29 and tickets are just $2. Pony up!
