STooPS Bed-Stuy brings art to Brooklyn streets
Brooklynites hit the streets this weekend as the eighth annual STooPS Art Crawl took over the front steps of some Bedford-Stuyvesant brownstones.
Pitched as a celebration of creativity in Brooklyn, the festival has brought dance, music, spoken word, theater, conversations, and workshops to the stoops and sidewalks of Bed-Stuy since 2013.
“While the event has become an anticipated mainstay of Bed-Stuy summers, it has become even more important in the midst of the pandemic,” said founder Kendra J. Ross. “As many NYC performance venues remain closed, opportunities to experience the power of live art in our vibrant city have been limited. Since being outside has always been our model, we offer a premier opportunity for folks to experience live art while still being socially distanced and safe.”
