Looking for something to do this weekend? The inaugural Photoville in Brooklyn Bridge Park starts today! Creating a "photography destination like no other", Photoville features lectures, exhibitions, workshops, a "photo dog run", beer garden, food trucks and beyond! What more could a photography enthusiast want?
Brought to you by United Photo Industries (as well as a ton of other sponsors including PDN, Center of Alternative Photography, Lucie Foundation, Adorama....the list goes on and on!) the goal of UPI and Photoville is to:
"promote and showcase emerging photographers through curated exhibitions around the world. Working in partnership with local galleries and key media partners, we concentrate on producing site-specific exhibitions that explore new thematic directions in photography. Drawing upon our international network of curatorial partners, we are able to provide unique exhibition opportunities for emerging photographers and facilitate their entry into foreign art markets."
The best of all, it's all free! Of course, you have to pay for the beer your drink and the food you consume but the access to the galleries, exhibits, workshops, The Greenhouse will only cost you the $5.00 for the metrocard fare there and back! Some of you may be lucky enough to walk....in which case, absolutely no excuse to not check out this awesome event!
Let us know what you think if you go!
