Artist Tom Fruin has installed a multicolored glass house outside Time Out Market

Dumbo just got a lot more colorful.

As the launch date draws closer for Time Out Market, artist Tom Fruin has brightened up the courtyard outside the soon-to-open venue with one of his signature brightly-colored glass houses. The installation allows visitors to step through and experience shimmering light in a bold spectrum of vivid colors. It also makes for some pretty killer pics. (Trust us. We shot the duo behind High Maintenance last year at one of the artist's installations at North Brooklyn Farms.)

The newly-installed house is a bit of a homecoming for Fruin who worked out of a studio in the neighborhood for years. The Time Out Markets and editorial team visited his studio a few months ago to facilitate the new installation in anticipation of the upcoming launch of Time Out Market (date announcement coming soon!) But you don't have to wait to check out this piece which is already on view.

The house is Fruin's first work to appear on the site, but he's definitely not a stranger to the surrounding area. The artist also has a number of pieces installed at theatrical powerhouse St. Ann's Warehouse just next door.
