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.

The painter Hermine Ford joined us today for our Authors and Artists Program at the Bushwick Library. Jason Andrew selected a new book, appropriate to the upcoming holiday, to share with the kids titled Thanksgiving Rules by Laurie Friedman and illustrated by Teresa Murfin. Then Hermine spoke with the kids about how nature influences her work. Hermine brought in two examples of her work, a small painting and a framed drawing. The kids thought it was amazing! Next, Jason and Hermine with the help of our terrific program assistant Silvia Cruz, led a project where by the kids made artwork by tracing and rubbing a variety of leaves collected from the nearby Maria Hernandez Park. A special thanks to Hermine Ford for sharing your time and talents with us!
