> DESCRIPTION

08.28.2009 – NEW YORK - The Dumbo Arts Center (DAC) is proud to announce the FREE 13th annual D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival® from Sept. 25th to Sept. 27th, 2009

The three-day multi-site neighborhood-wide event is a one-of-a-kind art happening: where serendipity meets the haphazard and where the unpredictable, spontaneous and downright weird thrive. The now teenage D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival® presents touchable, accessible, and interactive art, on a scale that makes it the nation's largest urban forum for experimental art.

Art Under the Bridge is an opportunity for young artists to use any medium imaginable to create temporary projects on-the-spot everywhere and anywhere, completely transforming the Dumbo section of Brooklyn, New York, into a vibrant platform for self-expression. In addition to the 80+ projects throughout the historical post-industrial waterfront span, visitors can tour local artists' studios or check out the indoor video_dumbo, a non-stop program of cutting-edge video art from New York City and around the world.

The Dumbo Arts Center (DAC) has been the exclusive producer of the D.U.M.B.O Art Under the Bridge Festival® since 1997. DAC is a big impact, small non-profit, that in addition to its year-round gallery exhibitions, is committed to preserving Dumbo as a site in New York City where emerging visual artists can experiment in the public domain, while having unprecedented freedom and access to normally off-limit locations.

EXTRA! DAC is delighted to report that the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) has selected the 13th D.U.M.B.O. ART UNDER THE BRIDGE FESTIVAL ® for a case study on outdoor festivals, to be published in 2010.
