May 11–13: Brooklyn Designs Show at the Brooklyn Museum

May 9, 2018

We’re delighted to be a repeat media sponsor of juried art and design festival Brooklyn Designs, coming this weekend to the Brooklyn Museum. Founded in 2003, Brooklyn Designs is the major exhibition of the year for Brooklyn-based designers, artists, and makers.

In addition to the more than 50 participating designers, some of whom we’ve featured below, the show will include art installations, themed lounges, workshops, and demonstrations, plus food and drink from some of the borough’s favorite purveyors. Brooklyn Designs is open May 11 through 13 at the Brooklyn Museum at 200 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn, New York. Tickets are $15 for the general public.

N.B.: Brooklyn Designs is offering Remodelista readers a $5 discount per ticket; use the code REMODELISTA. The show is free for students and members of the trade or media.
