New York Nonprofit Eyebeam Moves to Bushwick

Eyebeam, an arts and technology incubator established by John S. Johnson nearly twenty years ago, is relocating from Sunset Park to Bushwick, Claire Voon of Hyperallergic reports. The nonprofit, which describes itself as “a place to think creatively about how technology was transforming our society,” collaborates with artists and hosts a residency program, education initiatives, and other public programming.

The organization recently launched a Kickstarter campaign in an effort to raise $15,000 in support of transforming its new 6,000-square-foot space at 199 Cook Street into a sustainable home that will engage with society through technology and art and serve as an active hub for the creative community. As of Thursday, November 2, it has raised $3,681.

Prior to moving to Sunset Park, Eyebeam operated in Chelsea for seventeen years. Its new space on the ground floor of a three-story development was built with artists’ needs in mind. The nonprofit’s residents, American Artist, BUFU, Stephanie Dinkins, and Dhruv Mehtora, will move into the building tomorrow. The organization will open its doors to the public on November 30.
