Every year the Crest Hardware store in Williamsburg Brooklyn hosts a collection of work from local artists. The entertaining and often humorous art is displayed along side a familiar selection of tools and supplies. The Crest Hardware Art Show is a real down to earth experience appealing to a broad range of people that live in the community. The ideas and concepts in the show are rendered on a silly and theatrical level allowing for an accessible experience. From previous art shows I remember walking through the store and seeing the “Brawny” paper towel display and had to take to a second look to see that next to it was packages of “Scrawny” paper towels. Surprises and laughter fill the shelves. You may come to run a simple errand but you leave with a little bit of culture and a big sense of community.
