We’re still slightly in denial that summer is slowly coming to a close. Luckily for us, Brooklyn Public Library is hosting summer exhibitions that run through the end of September including theatre and music performances, book discussions and live painting demos with artist in residence, Steve Keene.
Here is a list of BPL’s Summer Exhibits:
