Triskelion Art Center, the performance space that has been a Williamsburg stalwart for 14 years now, is packing up shop at its N. 11th Street location and moving to a brand new space on Calyer Street in Greenpoint. In honor of the move and in order to raise some funds, the fine folks at Triskelion (full disclosure: the CEO and publisher of Brooklyn magazine serves on Triskelion’s board) are hosting a huge BBQ and garage sale in the backyard of the new space this Saturday.
Since the event will be outdoors (and since we’re still going to be in the midst of Polar Vortex II: Electric Boogaloo), dress warm, but definitely plan on attending. There’s going to be tons of stuff to peruse—from clothes to household goods—and plenty of good eats, including ribs, mac & cheese, and salad from The Meatball Shop, all with low, suggested donation prices. And, as the people at behind the event put it, “If Triskelion Arts has provided rehearsal or performance space in which you’ve created work, a fantastic show that inspired you as an audience member, an opportunity to be part of a rehearsal process in someone else’s work, space for a class you have taught or taken, or in any way provided you with an experience you have valued, making a donation today will help us to continue to create these valuable experiences for years to come.”
All of which is to say, you’re probably going to want to eat and even shop at some point this weekend, so why not support local arts while you’re at it? Just bundle up!
Saturday, January 25 10am – 4pm
At Triskelion Arts’ New Location: 106 Calyer Street, Greenpoint
