New York City’s Largest Photography Event is Totally Free
Don’t miss this year’s Photoville, a 60-exhibition event set on the scenic Brooklyn waterfront.
Photoville, New York City’s largest photographic event, is back, having recently set up shop in a village of shipping containers on the Brooklyn waterfront. Inside this temporary village of corrugated steel are exhibitions that will transport you through time and around the world.
There are more than 60 exhibitions at the fourth annual Photoville, as well as nightly projection programs, panel discussions, workshops and artist lectures. If that’s not enough to convince your beau to join you, perhaps mention the beer garden featuring draughts from the local Brooklyn Brewery, or all the food vendors from Smorgasburg. Plus, it’s free and open to the public. All ages (and, yes, dogs) are welcome.
With so much on offer, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. We recommend starting with these exhibits, which are guaranteed to inspire your next travels.
