Public Summer construction underway

Category : Announcement, Brooklyn, Public Summer 2011 Jul 7th, 2011

Construction is underway for architectural duo CO’s winning pavilion for the SUPERFRONT Public Summer program. It is located in Industry City of Sunset Park, between two warehouse buildings. From July 23rd through August 28th, the space will host local performance groups, non-profits, community groups, and individual artists interested in using a semi-outdoor space for weekend performances. A private preview for construction volunteers, project partners, supporters, and Industry City resident artists and businesses will take place Sunday July 17th.

It’s not too late to get involved. Volunteers are still welcome to help build during the next two weekends July 9&10 and Saturday July 16. Please email with your interest in joining this volunteer construction team and availability.

Donations to reach the remaining $1,000 of the summer project budget are welcome. $250 and above will be acknowledged as exhibit sponsors.
