We’re delighted to be a repeat media sponsor of juried art and design festival BKLYN Designs, coming this weekend to Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Founded in 2003, BKLYN Designs is the major exhibition of the year for Brooklyn-based designers, artists, and makers.
In addition to the more than 65 participating designers, some of whom we’ve featured below, the show will include more than 15 art installations, themed lounges, workshops, demonstrations, plus food and drink from some of the borough’s favorite purveyors. The BKLYN Buys marketplace offers ceramics, jewelry, furniture, and objects designed or made in Brooklyn. BKLYN Designs is open May 6 through 8 at the Brooklyn Expo Center at 72 Noble St. in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Tickets are $15 for the general public.
