Map & Details>>

The reunion of a 1970s San Francisco?based drag troupe, a 1930s Berlin-style cabaret, music acts ranging from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs to Matisyahu, a soul-dance competition, and a lecture by conceptual-art philosopher Henry Flynt are just the beginning at GlassLands Gallery. The tchotchke-filled, mural-lined industrial space on a no-man?s-land block in Williamsburg is something right out of the East Village?s heyday, with a paint-your-own section of wall; artwork including found objects by Joey Baby and paintings by TV on the Radio?s Tunde Adebimpe; a totally surprising daily lineup; and a consistently glam clientele. Proprietors Rolyn Hu and Brooke Baxter don?t forget the youngest budding artists either: GlassLands has an after-school music and art program for Williamsburg?s kids.
