Here’s a fun arts destination for Saturday: The second annual ART360˚ festival in Fort Greene will bring open installations, art exhibits, walking tours, live window mural painting and history lessons to Brooklyn’s Cultural District on Saturday, May 4, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Visitors can view Spike Lee projects at the filmmaker’s production headquarters, a tribute to the Brooklyn Dodgers, modular bike racks designed by musician David Byrne and more.

Hands-on types can participate in a bead-making demo with UrbanGlass or printmaking with BRIC at Fowler Square plaza, or snap selfies with the outdoor wall mural near BAM by artist Brian “KAWS” Donnelly.  Los Angeles-based street artist Morley will hold a meet-and-greet at Greenlight Bookstore.

Register in advance for free Brooklyn Cultural District walking tours, co-presented by the Fulton Area Business Alliance and American Opera Projects.

The tours, at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., explore the Brooklyn Cultural District. More than a dozen organizations have already created a reputation for this area as an arts destination. These include the Center for Fiction, Theatre for a New Audience, BAM Harvey Theater on Fulton Street, MoCADA (Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Arts), Mark Morris Dance Center and Irondale Ensemble. Artists from American Opera Projects will do “pop-up” performances.

An illustrated guide to ART360˚ with a full day of activities can be downloaded here.
