Photoville 2017 dates announced
Brooklyn’s FREE premier photo destination, PHOTOVILLE, produced by United Photo Industries in a modular venue built from re-purposed shipping containers will take place on September 13 – 24, 2017 in Brooklyn Bridge Plaza and feature more than 70 indoor and outdoor exhibitions.
Celebrating the 6th year on the Brooklyn Waterfront, centrally located in the Brooklyn Bridge Plaza directly under the iconic bridge in DUMBO, there will be containers, exhibitions, talks and workshops. The Smorgasburg Beer Garden and food vendors will return, alongside the night time events, and this year PHOTOVILLE will be more immersed throughout the park than ever before.
