Campbell & Servilio @ SFOS 08

Last year’s S.F.O.S. (Sewing Factory Open Studios) event featured 21 visual artists and 7 live music acts on the rooftop of an industrial loft building in Bed-Stuy. This September, the roof will again be turned into a sculpture garden augmented by paintings and featuring live music. Although line-ups are still being finalized, Loop 2.4.3, who “reinvent percussion from the bones out” (NPR-Fresh Air), and have been described as “a really focused and thrilling percussive ride” (, will headline the music stage and local artist Suzanne Boatenreiter will be curating the visual art. Other musical acts confirmed are CT songwriter Jonny Rodgers, NYC wordsmith Tom Burnett, and Hungarian pianist/keyboardist Istvan B’Racz, performing Phillip Glass along with original works. In addition to the curated art show, many artists who have studio space in the building will be offering open studios.

This show includes work from Tim Campbell ('08) and Sharon Servilio ('08).

The Art Show begins at 4 p.m. and goes into the evening with live music starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 20, at Spencer Sewing Factory Rooftop, 144 Spencer St. (click for map), Brooklyn (Bedford-Stuyvesant), NY 11205
