Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC)’s 2017 Spring Art Shows
Rites of Spring
Wide Open 8
Saturday, May 20, 2017 and Sunday, May 21, 2017
There are certain rites of spring that define the season – the blossoming
Cherry Esplanade at BBG, the return of ice cream cones and rose wine, and
for the artists and patrons of the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition
spring time signals a fresh new season of art shows and performances. Rites
of Spring, where light-filled airy galleries are loaded with images of rebirth
and renewal from over 150 artists; Wide Open 8, a national juried show
selected by MoMA assistant curator, Cara Manes, with 120 pieces in all
media chosen from over 1500 submissions; Recycle 2017, juried by Harriet
Taub of NYC’s Materials for the Arts, which has introduced many of our
visitors to the new re-use genre. 65 pieces are exhibited.
Special events are planned for every day of the show – including the Sunday
performance series, and Saturday reading series, which aims to celebrate and
savor the wondrous variety of Brooklyn-based wordsmiths.
