Bushwick Open Studios looks to be another huge year for arts in Bushwick! At press time there were 581 online registered events (down only slightly from last year’s 598 registered users) filling a weekend with art and performance. We worked over the very user friendly Arts in Bushwick website and compiled Norte Maar’s 2014 list of not to miss events, exhibitions, and studios… or at least those that we’ll not miss!!!! Similar to last year, all events/exhibitions/studios are divided into six zones stretching the geographic lines which make up the creative neighborhood of Bushwick.

Jed Lipinski’s recent article in the New York Times shed some light on the recent surge of gallery spaces here in Bushwick. Next Stop, Bushwick profiles the many independent spaces forming in the neighborhood, along with more established galleries moving into the neighborhood. Lipinski comments, “While Bushwick’s art scene is not new — cheap warehouses have been carved into bedbug-infested lofts for the better part of the last decade — it is turning a pivotal corner. In the last year, more than a dozen art galleries have opened in the industrial neighborhood, taking over rusty factories, Dominican botanicas and auto-parts stores.”
Norte Maar is proud to be one of the independents arts organizations that have helped create the neighborhood’s creative base. The community of galleries here have made way for spaces like Botanic Gallery, Interstate Projects, and those in the new 56 Bogart Building. We welcome our newest neighbors Luhring Augustine to their new space there as well!
