Fall 2015 Open Studios


2015 Fall Open Studios
Saturday, September 26 12-6pm

The NARS Foundation invites you down to Sunset Park to peer into the natural habitat of the artist: the studio. While viewers are typically invited to experience artist’s work at a completed state in a traditional setting, such as a museum or gallery, open studios allows the community to glimpse into the private world of an artist. A unique opportunity, open studios lets visitors understand the development of the work itself, by communicating with the artists amidst its creation. The Fall 2015 NARS Open Studios offers an opportunity to foster engagement between artist and community. Artists open their doors to the public in order to expose an otherwise private workspace, whilst gaining feedback and exposure. In turn, visitors get access to witness the creative process in motion.

The NARS Foundation will be hosting Open Studios on Saturday, September 26, 12-6pm. We are also pleased to announce that our neighbors, chashama at the Brooklyn Army Terminal, will additionally be hosting Open Studios, with a free water taxi running between Wall Street, DUMBO, and Sunset Park. NARS will operate a free shuttle bus between chashama, our partners at J&M studios, and NARS. For more information about chashama, click here.
