It was nearly a year ago when Sandy brought devastation to the city. Hit hard by the surge, the DUMBO neighborhood is now celebrating its revival at the three-day 17th annual DUMBO Arts Festival. As a part of this year’s program, there will be several Sandy-related installations, including a temporary recording studio where anyone can broadcast their hurricane stories on an experimental online radio station, a series of colorful grids along the waterfront made from foam swimming noodles to represent a symbolic protective barrier, and an exhibit by Brooklyn-based artists whose work was inspired by the storm. Other highlights from the more than 300 participating artists include an enormous portrait of Chelsea Manning, a processional of artists and 20 moving sculptures, and a giant lawn quilt at Brooklyn Bridge Park that you can help make.
