A Tribute to DAF

The Dumbo Arts Festival was started in 1997 as the Art Under the Bridge Festival and was a neighborhood tradition and summer destination for 18 years. We were sad to learn the festival would not be returning this summer, but excited to be asked to help keep the spirit of the festival alive by building a web-based timeline and historical archive of festival highlights. The Dumbo Arts Festival was one of our very first clients at Frank Collective and we have been thrilled to work with them ever since. Their new site, http://dumboartsfestival.com/, is an expression of all the joy, wonder, and awesomeness the festival brought to the neighborhood over the years.  Thankfully the cultural community the festival helped support continues to thrive.  As the site itself reminds visitors—“the Dumbo Arts Festival may be over, but art in Dumbo lives on!”
