Imagine This (September 27 - October 26)
Imagine asking artists, already known for their beyond-the-boundary imaginations, to create something new and cutting-edge, something that takes them out of their comfort zone and into a new dimension of their art. Well that's exactly what the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition (BWAC) asked their 200+ exhibiting artists to do for their Fall Show, Imagine This. And if it has viewers scratching their heads and asking that enduring question, "What Is Art?" -narrative pieces will accompany the work. If you've ever wondered what an artist was thinking, this might be your opportunity to gain some insight.
