The 2012 Dumbo Arts Festival was not only a showcase of talented artists but it was also a way of transforming the Brooklyn neighborhood with colors, patterns and textures. Tunnels under the Manhattan Bridge were covered by starscapes and twisting waves of light. Old buildings by the water were draped in fabric and photos adding a splash of fun to the drab brick structures- and that was only the beginning. In our opinion, these wonderful displays should be in place year round, but unfortunately most are already gone.
Take a look our photos of the outdoor installations below.
