Time Out Says

Artmageddon is back bigger and better on October 3 with Artmageddon II. With more than 130 artists and 30 bands, the entirely Brooklyn-based festival will give artists and admirers an opportunity to interact and visitors a chance to explore "Victorian Flatbush." Head over to enjoy live music across seven music stages, art by local painters and illustrators and activities for kids. The goal is to cover the neighborhood's streets and sidewalks with the inspired and beautiful vision of Brooklyn’s youth. Artmageddon, a series of art and music festivals, was originated by Robert Elstein, founder of Beautify Brooklyn, who was inspired by the local porch concert culture in the neighborhood. 

"A lot of folks don’t feel very comfortable or stimulated in a typical art gallery or opening in Manhattan and they maybe admire art that’s free of pretension,” Elstein says. “Artmageddon offers thousands of original artworks for sale at ridiculously low prices and allows typical New Yorkers to be curators of their own collection. We’re making art accessible to those for whom it will resonate most."
