Bushwick Open Studios Event
June 1 + 2
Rock Street 2013 is curated by artist Deborah Brown and gallerist Lesley Heller to showcase the work of 19 Brooklyn-based artists who work primarily in sculpture. The artworks are sited on Rock Street in Bushwick, allowing visitors to engage the work at close range, outside the confines of a traditional gallery setting. The artwork is on view continuously for 32 hours during the Bushwick Open Studios festival. Some of the work is created especially for the event and responds specifically to the site.
Rock Street is a one-block street owned by Frank Brunckhorst Company, LLC, a Boar’s Head distributor, located 2 blocks from the Morgan Avenue L stop between Morgan Avenue and Bogart Street. Frank Brunckhorst Company, LLC, owns and operates a plant on Rock Street and is a proud employer and important presence in the neighborhood. The company has generously granted permission for the curators to place the artwork on Rock Street for the weekend of the festival, a ground-breaking collaboration between a Bushwick-based business and artists in the community.

33 continuous hours during Bushwick Open Studios
