I went to Chasama Open Studio at Brooklyn Army Terminal. I have never heard of Chashama. But it seems very unique art organization.
According to their home page, chashama partners with real estate professionals, receiving in-kind contributions of properties that are converted into highly subsidized studios, galleries, event and performance venues that artists at any stage of their career can afford.
By making use of real estate-in-transition, chashama brings culture, new audiences, economic activity, increased foot traffic to local businesses, and life to surrounding areas. This combination has made chashama a major force in the now vibrant creative-placemaking movement.
Here are some of the artists’ works from Open Studio.
