Welcome To DUMBO

Galleries, residencies, events, and openings, all on the Brooklyn waterfront.


DUMBO, a neighborhood located between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, is Brooklyn’s epicenter of art and creativity. Now the converted warehouses are home to many of Brooklyn’s most important artist residency programs and arts organizations, located alongside artists’ studios and workshops.
