A Few Bushwick Open Studios Shows We'll Be Checking Out This Weekend

Gary Pini

Get ready for total arty-party gridlock in Bushwick this weekend. The last time we checked, there were 542 shows scheduled for the sixth annual Bushwick Open Studios -- and good luck trying to see them all. Here's the full list of exhibits, gallery shows, parties, performances, installations, films and...did we forget anything? That's right, DJs and bands. There's also a map and we recommend bringing it along, (unless you know where Meadow street is).  Fortunately, many of the shows are open until 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. A few things that caught our eye:

Holy Bos!
Bobby Redd Project Space,626 Bushwick Avenue, Brooklyn
A huge happening in-and-around a church with installations, a brunch, live music and films.

Jeffersonian 2012
148 Jefferson Street, Brooklyn
Rooftop installations, projections, multimedia sculpture and live performances.
