Hello Friends of Creative Times!

I hope this note finds you staying cool and enjoying your summer.

I am the Carroll Gardens/Cobble Hill/Boerum Hill Neighborhood Coordinator for The Brooklyn Museum GO open studio weekend.
  72 artists from the 3 neighborhoods I represent will open their studios to the public on September 8-9.

GO is a new project at the Brooklyn Museum, taking place in neighborhoods throughout Brooklyn. During GO, Brooklyn-based artists will open their studios to the community on September 8–9, 2012. Community members registered as voters will visit studios and nominate artists for inclusion in a group exhibition to open at the Museum on Target First Saturday, December 1, 2012.  Visit the GO website to learn about how you can take part in this borough-wide project:

Here is a list of 7 ways to get involved in GO.  Please email me if you would like to help with any piece of this project.

1.  Help staff the Information Spot.  Spend an hour (or two!) giving out maps and helping people register to vote at a local cafe or restaurant. 

2.  Get a group of friends together and lead a tour of some of the local artist studios.  You can even filter the studios for child-friendly ones!  Make the outing extra fun by ending it with a trip to a cafe or ice cream parlor!

3. Recruit other friends to lead tours.

4.  Encourage friends to log onto the GO website to browse artists, register to vote, and create an itinerary.

5.  Put up GO posters in local store and restaurant windows. (I have a ton at my house and can pass them along to you.)

6.  Share info about GO and the local artists who are participating through email, Facebook, blog, Twitter, word of mouth - whatever you are comfortable with! 

7. Identify local blogs who could give coverage to the event as well as to the local participating artists

If you would like to help with any of these things, shoot me an email.

I'm so excited to be working with neighborhood folks to make this a fantastic weekend for everyone!
Many Thanks,
