Artists on Site residency is a program partnership between Brooklyn Public Library and Brooklyn Arts Council, bringing diverse cultural heritage and contemporary art practices to a branch near you in Spring 2019. Participating branches include Brighton Beach, Flatbush, Macon, Red Hook, Saratoga and Sheepshead Bay. From celebrating traditions through festivals and instrument making, to telling stories through performance and photography to hosting pop-up exhibitions in a mobile gallery, Artists on Site connects local and international artists to communities throughout the borough. Come be a part of art in the making.

This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
