Bleecker Co-op Memorial Project Open Studio

Bleecker Co-op Memorial Project Reception: Sunday March 25 | 2pm!

Our final day of open studio at Bleecker Co-operative is taking place on Thursday March 8, from 5 to 9pm. 

Open studio has been a bustling environment with 20+ adults, youth, and children contributing at each and every studio, along with a team of artistic leaders. 

In tandem with building a large-scale dimensional artwork, several smaller projects have been created specifically for our reception including the production of a large cauldron-like object for title suggestions, and a print studio that has yielded more than 200 custom thank you cards for contributors. 

It's been a remarkable journey in collaborative art! Please join us:
