DUMBO Arts Festival is a free public event for three days–Friday through Sunday, and attracts over 200,000 visitors. My friends and I headed last Saturday on the “F” train to Brooklyn along with these thousands of other visitors, to attend this event. The first thing you’ll experience is the spectacular and iconic view of both bridges–Manhattan and Brooklyn! The festival has many trunk fashion pop-ups, street paintings, jewelry, food vendors, art statues, dancing performances, sculptures, art studios and stages throughout the neighborhood and in the park! I especially liked the “Little Poland” art gallery and immediately thought about my dad, who’s from Poland. Inside the gallery was an array of art from print work, sculpture, wood carvings to Polish jewelry and pottery. I even got to meet and talk with a talented artist, Ewa Budka.
