Street Art Pop-Up Store at Bushwick Open Studios


For several years now, writer Robin Grearson has been a major champion of New York City based street artists. She has curated several shows featuring street artists at The Active Space and her writings featuring local talent have appeared in a variety of publications and blogs, such as Artlog, Bushwick Dream, Curbs & Stoops, and Brooklyn Rail. And starting today, for Bushwick Open Studios 2012, Robin will take the unique step of turning her writing studio into a Street Art Pop-Up Store. The “store” will feature at least twenty artists, including Chris Stain, Daniel Feral, Jon Burgerman, LNY, N’DA, Royce Bannon and Never. There will be everything from original drawings and paintings to prints, zines and posters available, and surprisingly (with names like these!) nothing will cost over $300. Events like this are always a great opportunity for collectors to pick up a piece of work by their favorite artist on the cheap, so don’t miss out on this one as you stumble your way through a PBR-induced-open-studio-party haze this weekend!

Dates/times:
Open to the public during Bushwick Open Studios, June 1 – 3, 2012
Friday, June 1: 2 – 7 PM
Saturday, June 2: 12 – 6 PM
Sunday, June 3: 12 – 7 PM
