The mission of the Bushwick Arts Festival is to allow unrepresented artists to share creative ideas and artwork with the public.
The Bushwick Arts Festival was an intiative born out of necessity. In early 2016, the diverse local art community's regularly scheduled and expected events were left with an unexpected absence of organization and leadership. Bushwick Arts Festival was able to bring people together for a successful and unique weekend that fostered creativity, networking, as well as art sales. BAF was produced for a second time in June 2017.
