The scale of the installation The Titan and the Fireflies is gigantic, especially when you consider the medium used to create the sculptures – balloons. After seeing this exhibition you'll never think of balloons in the same way. If you have always been amazed by clowns making dogs and hats out of balloons this will be enough to send you into anaphylactic shock.
Greenpoint Open Studios is a weekend long event celebrating a burgeoning art scene in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It is a collaborative effort between artists, organizations, businesses and volunteers to build a creative platform in which all members of the community can foster and contribute to a support system that encourages the sharing of ideas and relationships. As artist studios and exhibition spaces continue to emerge in the neighborhood we hope to facilitate the growth of a thriving art community.
Events all weekend!
The Philly Fringe festival has a winner with the Gonzalas Cantata. What a great group of folks. The illustration for the poster is by Molly Crabapple of Dr. Sketchy fame. Heavybubble is hoping to get to a performance but deadlines are killing us. Why don’t you go and tell us how you liked it.
We had to tell you about this amazing opportunity for art, fabulous food, and conversation this Friday evening.

We saw this poster in a mailing and were intrigued by it. Imagine our surprise at how large a project this is. Repurpose! is just one in a number of events in an ambitious program in and around architecture and public space. We invite you to investigate the website and to engage in dialogue and action. Join in this workshop making temporary structures. Looks like making art to us. Make something and talk about it!
