Join Nooklyn at the 7th Annual Block Party on Saturday, June 2nd from 10 AM-6 PM. We’re giving away 2 VIP tickets — read on to find out how to enter!
Founded in 2011 by Joe Ficalora, The Bushwick Collective is a neighborhood institution that brings the world’s best street artists to the once-bare walls of Bushwick. Over the last seven years, Ficalora has made a huge impact on the community as it has evolved into one of the burgeoning neighborhoods in Brooklyn. He’s shared his compelling story in short docs Born & Bred: The Bushwick Collective and Complex’s No Free Walls. Now, you can’t walk around this slice of Bushwick without encountering the Collective’s ubiquitous and renowned street gallery.
The party will span two blocks along Troutman St., featuring live street art by notable artists including Hops1, ZAONE, SIPROS, Li-Hill, MR.JUNE, GIZ, MIRO, and more, plus music — New York native Ja Rule is headlining — and other performances.
Food vendors like Pop Pasta (yas spaghetti donuts) will keep you full, there will be plenty to drink (Modelo Beer Garden here we come), and local merchants will have booths set up. Nearby art hub Brooklyn Brush will have its June open studios, and House of Yes will be there to give you the glitter makeover you didn’t know you needed. To top it off, you won’t want to miss a visit the Nooklyn tent for a free gift from yours truly!
