What is BOS?
Bushwick Open Studios is a yearly art festival held exclusively in my neighborhood, Bushwick, Brooklyn. Since it's inception in 2006, Bushwick Open Studios’ has thrived on giving the public the opportunity to step foot in an artists studio, tour their space, and view their current art pieces. The open studios are scattered all over Bushwick but you can find them in large converted warehouse buildings by the dozen. This past week, I had a few hours to walk around and visit some of these spaces. In my opinion, the art itself does not make this festival so exciting. The opportunity to view the art in the same room as the artist is what attracts me the most. With the exception of gallery openings, this opportunity is normally unavailable and I invite everyone to experience this. BOS is free and available everyone.
