It’s that time of year again: Bushwick Open Studios takes place this weekend. This is the seventh year for the arts festival (in its current configuration), which has local sponsors, although it is a community organization open to anyone who volunteers and runs on a break-even basis. More than 600 shows this year include not only open houses in artists’ studios and curated group shows but also performances of all kinds, food and drink, discussion panels, music, and kid-friendly events. Those interested in Brooklyn history might want to check out Pioneers of Bushwick, a photography exhibition by Daryl-Ann Saunders, and Defying Devastation: Bushwick Then & Now, which examines Bushwick’s past and present through Meryl Meisler’s photos and Vanessa Mártir’s stories, alongside art from contributors who range in age from eight to 101 years old. The historic Schoolhouse building at 330 Ellery Street will be open, with more than 15 artists showing their work, and there will also be garden tours, a mural launch party, and a bike tour of Bushwick agriculture. For a full list of events, including photos of the work that will be shown, go here. If you haven’t attended Bushwick Open Studios before, it’s a great way to meet the neighbors and local artists.
