The Flock

28 May

Hey all,

I will be at Flock this year doing a bleach batik workshop. Please come thru and join us for the fun festivities. See you there!

FOKUS presents The Flock 2012:  Arts Party in The Plaza

(Brooklyn, NY) Art is a cause for celebration and creates a space for gathering. With this in mind, FOKUS created The Flock in collaboration with Soul of Brooklyn, to share unique craftsmanship and provide an opportunity for strangers, artists and art forms to gather in one eclectic place. On Sunday, June 3rd from 1-6pm, artists and their communities will gather at The Flock to showcase and engage with thearts under the summer sun at the Putnam Triangle Plaza (on Fulton and Putnam) in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, NY. Live music, art exhibitions, and workshops will be available for creative folks of all ages. DJ Lynnee Denise will be providing the musical soundtrack for the event in addition to a live performance by Sophia Urista.

New Yorkers will be invited to Brooklyn to peruse artwork, watch performances, shop for various goods, support small local businesses and participate in creative workshops. 15 vendors/ artists (of many mediums)/ artist educators will set up shop for one day only, providing a space for anyone, children and adults, to experience a variety of artwork in one space at their leisure. The Flock 2012 will focus on supporting creative small business models, that have become characteristic of Brooklyn, through its collaboration with the FAB (Fulton Area Business Alliance) and Sacred Brooklyn Yoga and Movement Studio.  Come join us for an afternoon of music, dancing, crafting, and celebrating art in its many forms!
