Hey, Weekend! (September ends with a bang!)

#1 Nicky Carvell's Rainbow Rev- Friday, 9/28 7-10pm 

TONIGHT!! Last Fall's Open Call winner, Nicky Carvell, wowed us with her 80s inspired symphonic color palette--think Keith Haring, Warhol, with a dash of Lisa Frank. It's been a pleasure to run into Nicky as they use the metal shop space for her magical, eye-popping car doors. The space looks as glam as a psychedelic car garage--check it out!

RSVP: Nicky's solo show on Friday, September 28th at 3rd Ward.  

#2 MoMa PS1 NY Art Book Fair- Saturday + Sunday 9/29, 9/30

Printed Matter presents the seventh annual NY Art Book Fair, from September 28 to 30, at MoMA PS1, Long Island City, Queens. It's FREE AND OPEN to the public. This is the hugest event for "artists' books, catalogs, monographs, periodicals, and zines presented by 283 international presses, booksellers, antiquarians, artists, and independent publishers from twenty-six countries."

If you've never been to this event, it's well worth it. You'll see books stiched up like quilts, made out of archival paper, or as common as a comic book. Get to PS1 before it shuts down for the next wave of installations.

#3 World Maker Faire- Friday-Sunday 9/29-9/30 

We'll be here. Hear our CEO/Co-Founder Jason Goodman speak on a panel about Makerspaces, and take in the wildly imaginative and futurist maker scene up close. To plan your time at Maker Faire, check out the schedule below, download the printed program guide, view a map of the Event Center, and get the app for your smartphone (please note the app will update to accommodate last-minute changes).

#4 DUMBO Arts Festival - Saturday + Sunday 9/29-9/30

'Nuff said right?  DUMBO Arts Festival is a hotbed of "outdoor and indoor visual art installations and exhibitions, digital art and large scale projections, visiting artists in their studios or making murals on the street, musicians, dancers, poets, performance and circus artists throughout the neighborhood, on street corners, and in the park."

#5 Bye, bye SHOPBOX ! - Friday-Sunday @ DeKalb Market 11 am- 7 pm // 138 Willoughby Street @ Flatbush Avenue

We're closing up shop this weekend at Dekalb Market. This is your last weekend to check out member made goods. Nestled among food sellers and other retail shops, SHOPBOX gives denizens of Dekalb Market’s surrounding neighborhoods, a taste of 3rd Ward’s Member Made products. Source materials are reclaimed, repurposed, sustainable--a mantra among the makers who work out of 3rd Ward’s wood and metal shops.
