Going down to the Dumbo Arts festival has been a tradition for my family for for about eight years now. We LOVE DUMBO! We have seen Dumbo dramatically explode on the scene from a hidden treasure to an abundance of creative shops, interesting galleries, great restaurants abound. The festival spans the neighborhood of DUMBO, Brooklyn between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, including the waterfront. The festival is energized with talented artists of every discipline - painting, sculpture, phototography, and multi-media, who open their doors and let people peek into their creative worlds.
Here is a peek of some of the talent:

Maya Malioutina's work uncovers the mystery behind and within textured surfaces. Love it!
Hongjunk Park artistry is very unique! She studies the interaction between liquid and paint. Tubes filled with clear colorful liquid superimpose painted landscapes of nature.
Cris Perry's transformations of paper is unbelievable! Innovative works of art!
We ended our day at Jane's Carousel, an amazing restored historic Carousel from 1922 magically set alongside the East River.
