Artist Registration Now Open For Brooklyn Museum's GO

This fall, the Brooklyn Museum is planning an amazing week-end to bring together Brooklyn-based artists with the residents of the borough's 67 neighborhoods. The event, which is meant to highlight local artists, is called "GO" and is a community-curated open studio project. Here is how it works. On September 8 and 9, 2012, artists across Brooklyn will open their studio doors. Community members registered as voters will visit at least five studios and nominate three artists. The ten artists with the most nominations will "receive studio visits from Brooklyn Museum curators. Two or more nominated artists will be chosen by the curators to have their work displayed as part of a Brooklyn Museum group exhibition opening at Target First Saturday on December 1, 2012."

The success of this event hinges on everyone, so lets all participate.
*If you are a member of Brooklyn's talented artist community, you can register now till June 29th, 2012.
To participate, artists must have a studio in Brooklyn and be present during the open studio weekend, September 8–9, 2012.  To date, 291 artists have registered.
(Apparently, Sunset Park is leading the way.  Let's make sure that our part of Brooklyn is also well represented.)

*If you would like to participate as a community voter, you will be able to register starting August 1st.

*If you would like to volunteer on the week-end of September 8-9, you can register now.

The Neighborhood Coordinator for Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill, and Carroll Gardens is Eleanor Weintraub. You can meet her here.
