Hrag’s photo tour of DUMBO open studios

At the ArtCal Zine, check out Hrag Vartanian’s slide show of the 2008 Art Under the Bridge festival in Brooklyn’s DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) neighborhood. “From Smack Mellon to the Triangle Arts Workshop, from artist studios to loading dock installations: DUMBO was decked out for its role as one of Brooklyn’s premier art festivals: the 2008 Art Under the Bridge weekend. While I got to see a healthy chunk of what was on display, I kept overhearing people talk about cool things I missed like the performance artist who bartered objects with the public or the artist who unfurled a blanket on the rocky shores of the East River. It was a rainy day under the Manhattan Bridge but no one seemed to notice.”
