NYC: DUMBO Arts Festival 2013
Pearl and Front St
A free, sprawling feast for the senses unlike any other in the city, the Festival takes over the entire neighborhood for three days, transforming its streets, parks, bridges, buildings, loading docks, galleries, and studios into canvasses, stages, exhibition spaces. More than 200,000 thrill-seekers can expect to experience a bonanza of brilliant local, national, and international art. Set amid the backdrop of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline in one of the city’s most culturally-rich and tech-friendly hubs, the festival offers something for everyone — from unexpected installations in stores and lobbies to huge, multi-story projections, interactive social experiments, participatory performances, and eye candy of all sizes.
