The art crowd was jovial and dancing, with the help of DJ Rehka as she brought her Bhangra out of the basement and into the backyard Saturday night night in BedStuy. After taking in the new pieces by Guy Denning and David Walker, guests were encouraged to loosen their limbs by the colorfully dressed dance troupe on the grass. It worked!
