A weekend-long annual celebration of the neighborhood’s unbounded creativity, festival Bushwick Open Studios is coming to its 7th year. Needless to say, a lot has changed in the neighborhood since 2006 when the festival was held for the first time. However, the self-curated festival keeps growing while operating within the loose framework of an anti-institutional, egalitarian, volunteer organization of Arts in Bushwick.
Dear friends, readers and supporters,
before you make any plans for the this upcoming week, we would like to warmly invite you to Bushwick Daily Holiday Party as a thank you for the incredible year of 2012. We would like to come together and celebrate the year and all its wonderful moments in the most magical and beautiful manner we can imagine… With photography and music!
Bushwick Daily Holiday Party will take place on Sunday, December 16, 2012, from 6PM to midnight at Brooklyn Fire Proof (RSVP on FB here).
From 6PM to 9PM you are invited to an incredible photography show of 14 amazing photographers all of whom are either Bushwick Daily contributing photographers or photographers we collaborated with and we deeply admire their work. The exhibition titled Bushwick 2012 is likely the biggest exhibition of contemporary Bushwick photography yet organized, and you should not miss it. The featured photographers include:
Rafael Fuchs in a dress and Meryl Meisler setting up a photo shoot with the Rabbi from the Chabad. This is how The Studio at the Bushwick Community Darkroom’s opening looked after a few bottles of wine were down.

I spoke with Lucia Rollow, a powerhouse organizer within the workaholic organization: Arts in Bushwick. It turns out that she wasn’t only sending out thousands of emails for Bushwick Open Studios, but also working behind the scenes for Go! Brooklyn and right in front at the Bushwick Community Darkroom among other things.
