131 Years Of The Brooklyn Bridge

For the fifth year in a row, Urban Folk Art Gallery will be honoring the anniversary of the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge with it's annual group art show. Every May, Brooklyn native, curator, and UFA resident artist Adam Suerte has been gathering dozens of artists from a variety of backgrounds and mediums to create their homages to one of the most enduring landmarks of Brooklyn, one that is recognized the world over. This year over 30 artists — painters, illustrators, photographers, tattooers, printmakers, designers, animators, and legendary graffiti artists — will be showing work, including Dead Flowers Productions very own Lee Greenfeld (aka Mr. Lee).

Last year's show featured surplus paint made for the Brooklyn Bridge with every artist in the show using the paint. Suerte also redesigned and repackaged the paint and sold the surplus of the surplus at the gallery. This year only a few artists are using the paint, but the rest of the limited edition surplus will be for sale, as well as the art on the walls, and some limited edition prints by artists in the show.

Urban Folk Art® Studios, 101 Smith Street, Brooklyn U.S.A.

Show runs until June 20th.
