3 Things to See: Gowanus Open Studios

If you’re bummed about missing out on Bushwick Open Studios earlier this month, you’re in luck: the neighborhood of Gowanus – another vibrant artists’ hub in Brooklyn – is hosting its own open studios event starting this Saturday, October 15th, through Sunday, October 16th. Get to know three of the artists that we’re excited to visit this weekend:
