Getting Ready for Bushwick Open Studios 2019

The art scene in Brooklyn, NYC is vibrant, diverse, and it is definitely something that is worth your attention. From mind-blowing street art to numerous galleries featuring works by the most prominent contemporary artists, Brooklyn offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy and acquire art. Each neighborhood in this NYC borough is full of arts and culture, but Bushwick occupies a special place. Not only is it home to the best murals and graffiti, but it is also home to Bushwick Open Studios, a three-day festival celebrating local artists and their art.

Bushwick Open Studios 2019

Bushwick Open Studios, also known as B.O.S., is one of the most important art events happening in Bushwick. This “open to all” festival is organized by Arts in Bushwick, a unique arts platform aimed at keeping the cultural relevance alive within the neighborhood, as well as helping and connecting Bushwick artists from all walks of life.

B.O.S. first opened its doors in October 2006. At the time, it was a one-day event with a group show, a film festival, open studios, a cabaret, a community parade, and a closing party. Over the years, B.O.S. has grown to become one of the largest events of its kind in the world. The 2019 edition will be held on September 20-22, bringing together hundreds of artists, galleries, non-profit organizations, small businesses, and art connoisseurs. The festival will host art sales, art shows, block parties, and many other activities for everyone to enjoy.

At Fine Art Shippers, we look forward to visiting Bushwick Open Studios too. We have extensive experience in moving fine art to/from various art events in New York and beyond, and we hope to help local artists and galleries with art logistics and art installation. Whatever assistance you need, please feel free to contact our team of professional art handlers!
