The Brooklyn Museum is holding a community-curated open studio project named GO. Neighborhood artists will open their studios to their communities on the weekend of September 8th and 9th; on those two days, community members who register as voters will visit the studios and will then nominate the three artists who they think should be included in an exhibit at the museum. The exhibit will open on December 1st.

The project coordinator for Kensington is Renee McGarry (renee @ She has registered seven Kensington artists. Click here to see a thumbnail for each artist. Click on the thumbnail to see their work and read their artist statement.
