It’s a Festival of Blight!
Artists ’round Brooklyn-World are taking Christwanzaakkuheid matters into their own hands….with art fairs and screen-printing parties and good old-fashioned holiday disco-burlesque-debauchery !!!!
Here are a handful of opportunities to spend your cash and not worry that it is getting sucked through a tube to a corporate headquarters somewhere while the frightened-minimum-wage-no-health-benefits cashier who bags your item thinks about hitching a ride to her second job.
When you buy art in your community from your community your money stays in your community. Hooray!
