This Weekend: $99 Show & DUMBO Open Studios

Friday, September 24, 2010 · No Comments

There’s some really cool stuff going on this weekend both in NYC and Minneapolis. So if you’re in either of these cities take note!

The concept for this show is just so awesome! I really wish I could attend myself. Hundreds of artists donate 5 x 7″ work for the show which benefits The Soap Factory, a Minneapolis non-profit for emerging art. All pieces sell for $99 and are only signed on the back. Part of the fun is that you don’t know who made what until after the art is purchased. As The Soap Factory asks “Can you spot an art world darling or will you simply buy what you like?”


The DUMBO Arts Festival includes open studios of many great Brooklyn-based artists and designers this Saturday and Sunday. Quite frankly many of the artists involved are unfamiliar to me which I view as a great opportunity to see some new and different art! If I make it over (which I plan to) I will definitely stop by April Hannah‘s studio which I visited this past spring.
