This year’s event will feature five floors of visual and performance art plus theater, film, dance and musical events. All events are FREE and open to the public.
The Clemente stands as a complement and bridge to the current development of the Lower East Side, housed in the beautiful, former PS 160 designed in 1897 by Charles B. J. Snyder in the Dutch neo-gothic style. The public is invited to come explore this culturally diverse representation of the community which houses 11 visual and performing arts organizations and over 46 visual artists’ studios.
Open Doors Open Studios includes a series of performances from Jazz, Capoeira, Film and Dance to Poetry by performing artists produced by arts organizations of The Clemente. Most of these events will take place in the Flamboyan Theater on Saturday, June 1 , beginning with children’s performances at 3:00pm and the main program running from 4:00-8:00pm.
