The Market at the Old American Can Factory

One of the best things about New York is how much old architecure exists... and how often people rejuvenate it with new purposes. The Old American Can Factory in Gowanus, Brooklyn is a great example. As part of XO Projects Inc, it's being recycled into a creative center with studios, offices, and now a market for all types of creative people. The building houses ceramicists, chefs, sculptors, film makers, painters, writers, and so much more.

On alternating Sundays in September, and then every Sunday in October through December, they will host The Market, a "curated Makers Market of Art + Design Products + Services", of which I'm flattered to have been invited to partake. There are many other amazing artists showing, so it's a wonderful place to spend a Sunday afternoon. Hours are 11-6 pm. And both dates this September - the 13th and the 27th - will have live music in the Courtyard from 4-7 pm. On the 13th it'll be curated by the Issue Project Room.

I'll be at the Market on the following dates:
September 27th

October 25th

November 8th

November 22nd

December 13th
