Building on  the success of its 2011 festival, which featured 500 artists and a record 225,000 attendees, the Dumbo Arts Festival announced that AT&T will return for its second year as Presenting Sponsor.  AT&T will join founding sponsor Two Trees Management Company and neighborhood partner The DUMBO Improvement District in presenting the weekend-long festival from September 28 – 30, 2012.

Thanks to AT&T’s 2011 support and leadership, the festival increased its programming capacity, significantly improved its guest- and artist-engagement tools, and emphasized the capabilities of network- and technology-enabled art – a nod to DUMBO’s thriving hub for New York City’s digital startups and artists. Over the course of the weekend, 225,000 guests attended the festival, experiencing works by more than 500 artists, 100 open studios, 50 galleries and stages, and 100 programming partners in Brooklyn’s most celebrated waterfront neighborhood.

Festival hours are 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 28; 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29; and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30. All outdoor projections are open from 6 p.m. to midnight all three nights.
