On June 6th, from 12-10pm The 407 Bushwick’s outdoor gallery rooftop had it’s third Art In The Air event with 10 street artists painting murals live as the underground house music was moving the jam packed crowd. AITA is a lovely marriage between sight and sound and the only underground visual and audio collaboration at this elevated art level in all of New York City.
AITA3 artists were Arbiter, Bk Foxx. Bryan Leaf Stacy (NC), Fumero, Hektad, JPO, Rob Fogle (NC), See One, Smurfo, and Zukie. Eight artists from New York and two from Wilmington, North Carolina. The DJ line up included Chris Luzz, Intimate Project Music and Shadi of Twice As Proper.
The weather broke once again and the sun shined upon this extra special and very unique rooftop located at 407 Johnson Avenue in the heart of Bushwick, Brooklyn. This year Art In The Air 3 was a part of Bushwick Open Studios weekend where a host of art events and gallery shows were taking place throughout June 5th, 6th and 7th such as Walk of Art Kids show at Low Brow Artique, A Group Show (which is still going on at 195 Morgan Ave), The Bushwick Collective Block Party and access to many artists’ studios. Everything under the sun was going on that weekend in Bushwick and The 407 was one of the highlights.
The energy was incredible up on the loft, everybody was enjoying the music and the murals, dancing to the pulsating beats of deep house traxx and seeing some of today’s contemporary muralists bring their fine art to walls.
Aphotic hosted another amazing party for the public to enjoy and we appreciate all who came out to support. Thank you to all the street artists and DJ’s who participated at AITA 3, you gave the crowd something to feel deep down inside that opened their ears and made their eyes wide when art is in the air.
