Open Call for "Brooklyn 111" Art Show

Yes this is an actual bag/ Photo taken in the Coney Island train station.

Another P.S.A! Passing the word on here for another good cause. Brooklyn Art Gym otherwise known as B.A.G is having a national open call for art in ANY media.

In anticipation of Brooklyn’s 111th year as a New York City borough, BKLYN: 111, is a question and dialogue about the environment, urban spaces, and creative process. This is a national call for original work in ANY medium.

In 1898, Brooklyn transitioned from being an independent city to becoming a borough of New York City. Brooklyn, in its 110 years as a borough, has had immeasurable impact on the shape of New York City. Brooklyn is the most populace borough that would qualify as one of the United States’ largest cities, and maintains its own unique culture, art scene, and history. Brooklyn is adored by writers, painters, and filmmakers, and often credited as a source of inspiration. Many would argue that Brooklyn is the “heart of the City”.
