After more than two years of limited access due to COVID safety precautions, BRIC has announced it will officially reopen to the public on September 12.

BRIC House, a 40,000 sq-ft space that hosts exhibitions, a performance space, a state-of-the-art public access television center, a café, and classrooms, will once again be available as a space for the BRIC community to gather.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome our community back to BRIC House, a space I often refer to as ‘Brooklyn’s Town Square,'” said Wes Jackson, BRIC’s president.

BRIC will host a reopening celebration and reception on September 21st from 7:00pm – 9:00pm in time for its fall gallery exhibition Rodrigo Valuenzela: New Works for a Post Worker’s World. RSVPs are encouraged.

“Lifting up the work of Rodrigo Valuenzela and our Contemporary Art team is a natural way to welcome people back into our home and continue the artistic dialogue as we look ahead to the fall,” Jackson said. “I’m ecstatic to have artists and media makers once again fill the BRIC House halls and join us in building Brooklyn’s creative future.”

Since closing to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic, BRIC House has only opened its doors for select programming and events, and the media center has been available by appointment only. Following the official reopening, BRIC House , hold meetings, and hang out with one another on a daily basis. People can lounge in the lobby area, sit together on the stoop, enjoy the café, explore contemporary art exhibitions, and access the media center’s tools and resources.
