Last year, BOS, which allows the public a peek into the countless studios of local artists, was moved from its usual June date to October.
Unfortunately, an October date drew smaller crowds, even though organizers had stressed that the original BOS events used to be held in the fall.
While still not summer, the September date appears to be a return to warmer weather and bigger crowds that Bushwick Open Studios enjoyed in previous years.
Before the main event, AiB will host a Community Day on June 17 at House of Yes, showcasing the work of local artists. If you’ve never been to open studios before, it may be a good way to check out what this organization does.
There are still many ways to get involved, including signing up to volunteer at the Community Day and applying to either host an event or open your own studio to the public. All opportunities are listed on the AiB website.
