DUMBO Arts Festival
With its industrial spaces easily converted to studios, DUMBO underwent a radical transformation into a thriving community for art and design. The DUMBO Arts Festival honors that creativity with an all-out three-day festival that draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to around 100 open studios, 50 galleries and stages and no shortage of art and performance spilling out from work spaces and storefronts into the streets—with outdoor installations, murals, large-scale projections and plenty of poets, dancers and buskers plying their trades.
