IRL: DUMBO Open Studios in 2022

Contributed by Sharon Butler / On Saturday, April 23, and Sunday, April 24, from 12–6pm, DUMBO artists and arts organizations will open their studios to the public for the first time since 2019, after which DUMBO Open Studios went online due to Covid. The art community here (Two Coats HQ is in the neighborhood) is distinct from others in New York because several prestigious residency programs call DUMBO home. In addition, subsidized rents (Two Coats is a grateful beneficiary of the Two Trees Cultural Space Subsidy Program) make the neighborhood affordable for a diverse cohort of talented artists, both emerging and mid-career. Regardless of the artists’ stature or status, most studios will be open.
