Brooklyn Bridge 130th Anniversary Group Art Show

Urban Folk Art® Gallery will be honoring the 130th anniversary of the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge with a group show of over 30 local artists of varying mediums. In their fourth show of this type, artists will be showing their homages to the bridge with one common element. In February 2013, curator and contributing artist Adam Suerte acquired five 5 gallon buckets of surplus paint from the NY Department of Transit that was used to do touch ups on the Brooklyn Bridge ( Each artist in the group show will be using the
“Chocolate Brown Enamel” in some way within their piece. Painters, comic artists, graphic designers, photographers, screen printers, tattooers, graffiti artists, toy designers and artists of other mediums will be contributing. Suerte, as one of his pieces has repackaged some of this paint in a limited edition quart size cans that will be for sale at the show. If you ever wanted to own a piece of the bridge, this could be considered pretty close.

The show opens May 24th from 7-10 and will remain up until the end of June.paintcansmockup
