Gowanus Lounge: Serving Brooklyn

Upcoming: BAG Shades of Green Benefit Concert

November 7th, 2008 · No Comments

Today (11/7), Brooklyn Artists Gym (BAG) is having its inaugural fundraiser at the Center for the Urban Environment (168 7th Ave b/w 1st St & Garfield Pl) to help raise money to award high schoolers and single parent artists with studio space to create a new body of work, and to help suppose the creative ecosystem – promoting sustainability for art and artists, while enriching the green movement. $125 (or $200 for two) gets you into the VIP catered reception with a 100% recycled material Shades of Green bag and t-shirt. Or, for $45 ($50 at the door), join everyone from 8pm to midnight for sounds from DJ Miss Mocha, and performances by Mike Gamble, Chen Lo and Baba Israel with Yako 440. If you’re a Brooklyn artist (and we know there are plenty of you out there), this is a great opportunity for you to come out and show support to an organization that’s built to give the same support to your art community, not to mention a great place to network.
