BOS '10 Weekend is Here!
What is BOS '10?Bushwick Open Studios is a self-organized, collaborative festival produced by Arts in Bushwick. Now in its fourth year, the festival features more than 300 shows in over 150 locations.
Looking For A Map?You can pick up maps and programs at one of our 14 hub spaces (see below), or at various coffee shops around the Bushwick area: Cafe Orwell (Morgan L), the Archive (Morgan L), Wyckoff Starr (Jefferson L -- also a hub), and Little Skips (Myrtle-Broadway J/M/Z).
Need Help Getting Around?Bushwick Open Studios takes place over 3 square miles of Bushwick and neighboring areas in East Williamsburg, Ridgewood and Bedford-Stuyvesant. To help you get around the festival, we've designated 14 hub spaces, where you can pick up a copy of our printed map and program, get information, and reorient yourself. The hubs come up as letters A - N on our Google Map. Each hub is relatively close to public transportation, and can be a good starting point for festival attendees. Hubs will be open during normal festival hours: June 5 + 6, 12 PM - 7 PM.
