It was a busy weekend here in Williamsburg & Greenpoint, with the opening of the Crest Hardware Art Show (C.H.A.S.), Northside Open Studios, and the India Street Art Festival. Highlights included the Brooklyn Street Art curated Skewville mural “Last Exit to Skewville”, Jon Burgarman’s “Racing Lines”, Veng’s reworking of the “Welcome to Greenpoint” mural, and Olek’s crocheted performers.

This Saturday in Brooklyn

2010CFPOSTERFLIER

You know summer is in full swing when there are too many events to chose from on a single day. Case in point, this Saturday in Brooklyn: check in with some ‘Old Tymers’ as they put paint to walls creating an outdoor mural arts gallery for the new Phun Phactory in Williamsburg starting at 10am. At noon, the festivities kick off for Crest Fest, my favorite annual hardware-themed show. If you’re overly ambitious, hop the G to the F to Coney Island to catch the 2pm start of the annual Mermaid Parade with King Neptune Lou Reed and Queen Mermaid Laurie Anderson. And once the sun’s gone down, head back to Williamsburg for the Shock Therapy opening at Pandemic Gallery. Saturday promises to be a heady mix of sun, fun, and art (with a healthy splash of ice cold beer).
