Neighborhood Galleries Unite for Design District Gallery Day

On July 28th, 12 Design District Galleries will open their doors for an all-day gallery celebration. From 12 to 9 p.m., you can stroll down Dragon Street (with pit stops down neighboring streets), sip on a Brooklyn Lager and enjoy the many interesting and thought-provoking exhibits on display at each gallery. Food trucks will line the streets in case you get hungry, and each stop will have 25 gift bags to give away, complete with an official Design District Gallery Day t-shirt.
