Abztract is headed to the NYC Urban Art Fair by MBP (Mark Batty Publishing). We will have a booth at the event where we will be displaying artwork and we will also have some merchandise for sale and some fun giveaways. So swing by, it is going to be a fantastic event involving some of our very own featured artists including Royce Bannon and Robots Will Kill. Hope to see you there.
Come on out on October 3 for the first MBP Urban Arts Fest! The two-part, one-day festival will go from 1PM-2AM. The whole day is about the thriving urban art community MBP has advocated since its inception. With skateboard demos and contests, live painting, music and DJs, photography and art installations and plenty of art and books for sale, there will be something for everyone!
We will be taking over and transforming the entire lower-half of Castle Braid (114 Troutman Street, Myrtle Ave/Bwy JMZ Train) in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The day’s first part runs from 1PM-9PM and is open to all ages; 9PM-2AM is 21 and over, featuring free beer and a dance party.
Our non-profit beneficiary is Art for Progress, an organization dedicated to supporting rising multi-discipline arts in New York City.
