GO Brooklyn: The Painter Who Dresses Windows

Brooklyn, NEW YORK—Sarah Alice Moran dresses windows at Macy’s in Herald Square and keeps a studio in Red Hook where she paints on large canvases. Inspired by her personal experiences, her latest series documents her retail adventures and frustrations.

Moran is one of hundreds of artists working throughout the Brooklyn who participated in the Brooklyn Museum’s GO Brooklyn open studios event over the weekend (Sept. 8 and 9). The community-curated project that will determine the artists chosen for a group exhibit at the museum in December.

Arts Observer visited Screwball Spaces in Red Hook today, where dozens of artists participating in GO Brooklyn keep studios, and will share the work of several others in the coming days.
