Chashama is a community of artists. Even though I don’t talk to others in the studio every day, the fact that I see and hear them working around me provides motivation and encouragement.
This weekend, visit over 80 studios and explore finished arts and works-in-progress at the Chashama’s beautiful studios in Brooklyn Army Terminal. Take the NY Water Taxi to the Brooklyn Army Terminal tonight, 6 - 10 pm, or tomorrow, 3 - 9 pm. RSVP here.
Before you go, meet Lindsey Warren and Ji Yong Kim, one of 93 artists working out of the studio, on our blog.
Celebrate the rebirth of La Marqueta.

New York City’s stature as a global fashion capital is deeply connected to its apparel manufacturing industry.
Martin Greenfield Clothiers exemplifies this as one of NYC’s longest-running factories.
From a recent NYCEDC - Open House New York Making It Here tour
We live in New York, we like New York, and our employees live and work here. We have a profit incentive, but we also feel a responsibility for the families of our workers.
