DUMBO Arts Festival

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

This past weekend was Brooklyn's annual DUMBO Arts Festival. Located in the gorgeous neighborhood of DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass), right by the water, many people gathered to check out art installations, galleries, musical performances, and workshops. It's great for families, couples, friends, and art enthusiasts. The event started on Friday the 24th and ended Sunday the 26th.

I had the chance of going on Sunday with my boyfriend Andres & my friend Tanuka. Of course we weren't able to see everything but we did check out the art galleries and stopped to enjoy the music of Yellowbirds featuring Sam Cohen, performing on the sidewalk as part of the musical sidewalk series.

Because I was attending the event for an assignment in school, I was able to also interview a few people for my piece. I met few, interesting individuals - most were tourists just visiting and others lived in the neighborhood. It was nice seeing various types of people coming together for an interest in the arts.
