More than a hundred artists working out of studios in DUMBO will open their doors to the public for the weekend as part of the annual DUMBO Open Studios.

Between April 23 and 24, the event will return in-person for the first time since the pandemic hit in 2020.

Art in DUMBO, which hosts the event, said more than 100 artists across the waterfront neighborhood will welcome the public into their studios and workspaces, giving New Yorkers and visitors the chance to engage directly with the emerging and established artists at the center of the area’s thriving arts community.

Studios range from artists who have worked in DUMBO for decades to those participating in artists residency programs, including the Sharpe-Walentas Studio Program, BRIClab, New York Studio School, Smack Mellon and Triangle.

Artists in the community include Alexandra Bell, Alexi Worth, Cheryl Wing-Zi Wong, Peter Drake, Juan Sanchez, and many more.

Well-known neighborhood galleries, including A.I.R. Gallery, Undercurrent and Lucky Risograph will also participate by with open houses, extended hours and special events.

A map of artists’ studios will be announced soon at DUMBOopenstudios.com.
