Last night the mask-wielding artists of the Bruce High Quality Foundation opened up the doors of their epic new studio space in Sunset Park. The excuses were a party and an exhibition featuring work inspired by French Baroque painter Nicholas Poussin’s landscapes, while the reason was fundraising for the Bruce High Quality Foundation University (BHFQU), an experimental, non-profit art school that offers free classes and an alternative to the MFA by separating art from careerism. Come January, BHQFU, which has had a home base in the East Village since 2013, will move its operations here to Sunset Park.

Keep calm and carry home some art — and help fund schools in the process.
On Friday, The Creative Cycle hosted “Out of Line” at Bruce High Quality Foundation University in the East Village. The one-night only exhibit raised a total of $420 for two arts classrooms at PS 64 Robert Simon and PS 9 Teunis G. Bergen. If you missed it, don’t worry: you can still chip in by buying a new mix tape of previously unreleased tracks from your fave Brooklyn bands.
