Pretty much says summer, doesn’t it? All photos by Joseph Talman

After a long, brutal winter, people in the art world have been looking forward to Bushwick Open Studios more than ever. Finally, from May 30 to June 1, artists and art  collectives threw open their doors for shows and a celebration of the neighborhood’s art. For people who make the trek out to Bushwick, BOS is not just merely art, it’s an experience, but it’s also special for those of us who live here, the creatives and art-lovers alike.

The following photos document only a very small portion the weekend’s endless art party, one I am happy to call one of the most amazing weekends I have ever had in Brooklyn.

  1. Thanks for mentioning us in your photo wrap-up! Those three lovely ladies pictured above are actually the dancers of Gushue Moving Arts. We had such a blast performing for Bushwick at the Launch Party at Radio Bushwick, and all weekend long at our apartment shows!
