Daytime visitors are encouraged to explore Open Artist Studios in and around Brighton Beach, as part of the Brooklyn Museum's GO Project, and vote for their favorite Brighton Beach-area artists. The evening program is comprised of live music, art, and comedy presented at the NY Aquarium, followed by a DJ-spun dance party on the adjacent beach, where a large-scale site-specific art installation, “Brighton is Cool, Ocean is Hot,” made up of 36 working air conditioners.
The evening offers the “Amazing Water” art exhibit, open bar and snacks, video projections and live performances by ground-breaking multi-cultural artists, including Y-Love, The Clox, Lady Aye, Alina Simone, and Amour Obscur. Out on the beach, DJ Jason Diamond and DJ Spinach will be spinning a dance party into the night.
