Brooklyn’s 3rd Ward Expands

September 25, 2009

The awesomeness of 3rd Ward never stops. As reported in Brooklyn Based this week, this feisty space devoted to independent creative production — where you can take wood working classes, rent a WiFi office cubicle, see shows by local artists, and partake in a pig roast party — is located in a huge loft building on Morgan Ave. in Bushwick.

A few weeks ago they quietly opened a second location on Metropolitan and Lorimer, doubling their space and expanding their class offerings. How about “An Introduction to New York’s Art World” featuring lectures from gallerists, artists, curators, and dealers ready to help you navigate the art scene and get your work shown? They’ve also teamed up with Etsy to offer courses like Extraordinary Embroidery.

When you become an annual member (starting at $39/month), you even get a free bike. Now that’s forward thinking!

3rd Ward is one of the most relevant and in-touch arts non-profits out there. They also throw swell parties. Check them out at the grand opening reception on October 23!
