DUMBO Art Under the Bridge Festival In the Rain?

The theme is 'Expect the Unexpected," but we don't think that was supposed to mean the weather. The rain is unfortunate, because this year's Art Under the Bridge Festival in Dumbo is looking very exciting, with 1,500 artists participating.

Art is supposed to be all over the "streets, sidewalks, storefronts, elevators, lobbies, the water, the waterfront, parks" and more and more. Hope it's waterproof.

Luckily, a number of the exhibit spaces are inside -- more than 100 artists will open their studios to the public, and at the new Galapagos Art Space will feature cutting edge video art.

The festival runs from 7 PM tonight, September 26th through Sunday evening.

Sunday will probably be our best shot for the outdoors exhibits.
