Director of Local Outreach / Producer / Art Director.
Bushwick Open Studios is an arts and culture festival hosted by the volunteer-run organization Arts in Bushwick. Once a year, hundreds of artists are brought together for a weekend-long extravaganza including open studio art galleries, dozens of performances, pop-up exhibitions, and all manner of special events spanning from East Williamsburg and Bed-Stuy to Maspeth and Ridgewood.
Having personally attended BOS for many years, I decided it would be an amazing opportunity to volunteer Beyond's space as one of the open studios for the weekend. It was Beyond's first year in the neighborhood and my goal was to optimize our involvement in the arts and culture community.
I was able to negotiate Beyond as the exclusive host space for the official opening group show known as Seeking Space. From there, I acted as the main point-of-contact between Beyond and Arts in Bushwick, helping with production logistics leading up to, during, and after the event.
The results were phenomenal. We successfully installed and displayed over 200 artists' work of all varying mediums. Hundreds and hundreds of people showed their support through out the night with lines wrapped around the corner to get in.
