Brooklyn artist, Mike Perry’s recent endeavor, Wondering Around Watching (WAW) IS A 7k square foot creative wonderland nestled away amidst rows of former industrial spaces lining Dean St. in Crown Heights.
Conceived and designed by Perry, WAW doubles as both a free exhibition space and community free space for life-long art making. WAW is a revolutionary new concept in the way an art space interacts with the community. Eschewing a typical NYC gallery opening process Perry began with a concept that everything had to be community-oriented and free ...free entry, free refreshments, free classes, free workshops, free concerts, and all of it had to be available to people of all ages and abilities. After several months of preparation WAW opened on September 15th with over 500 people in attendance. Several successful community workshops followed the opening of the space and their second full exhibit titled Happy Accidents will be opening this Saturday, October 6th at 6pm.
