D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival 2009

Dumbo was a wonderland of art, mystery, humor, weirdness and spontaneity this past weekend with the 13th annual D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival sponsored by the Dumbo Arts Center (DAC). The crowds were big Saturday and came back on Sunday after the rain slowed. Here are a few photos from one of our favorite NYC events:

Above, The Experience of Green by Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen --an impressive installation at DAC (runs through November). The site-specific piece is
a walk-through labyrinth of old growth trees made entirely from red kraft paper.

Stir Crazy, performance by Ryan Roth. Here, Roth has been forced by these economic times into an "endangered, caged and untamed, business werewolf." That wolf face is made from recycled corporate-style shoes.

The Tree of Life: Reina Kubota's plastic bag installation glowed from within.
