Heralded by the New York Times as "one of Brooklyn's cultural anchors," the Invisible Dog wants to blow you away with its 4th Season.
Thanks to your generosity we did the goal! Now we have to go over it. If so, we will be able to to support more artists, to welcome more audience to present more events, more exhibitions and performances. And part of this extra money will fund kids from low-income families in our neighborhood to attend a 4-week after-school workshop with our partner and friend Inventgenuity Workshops right here at the Invisible Dog!
Continue to show us your support! Cheers
This Fundraising Campaign is being launched to commission a season of exhibitions, performances and residencies at The Invisible Dog. At the pace The Invisible Dog is growing, we need help to continue our ambitious programming. We are dedicated to expanding our role as an accessible space for communities to form around a central love for the arts and other cultural programming. We recognize that artists create more and better work when freed from the stress of fundraising. Help us raise $25,000 to disperse to artists throughout the season, and in turn we will bring you bigger, better, and continuously free exhibitions and performances from an international roster of artists.
