Mission Statement

The D.U.M.B.O. Arts Center (DAC) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit contemporary arts organization located in Dumbo, Brooklyn, New York. DAC's mission is to catalyze interaction between visual artists, the local community and the wider public, in order to preserve the neighborhood of Dumbo as a springboard for new art.

Description

Founded by artists in the wake of the first D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival in 1997, DAC was the first non-profit arts organization in Dumbo, Brooklyn. DAC continued to produce the annual multi-site festival from 1998-2009. By attracting thousands of visitors and media attention to the once abandoned manufacturing area, DAC's role has been pivotal in the establishment of Dumbo, Brooklyn as a recognized neighborhood and cultural destination.
