We found Bed-Stuy artist Maggie Bard at a group show earlier this year, and invited her to illustrate a shirt for us in her unique style and voice. We loved her custom illustration so much, that we asked if she would be interested in drawing it all over the walls of our store on Bedford Avenue… to which she replied, “Of course!” The more we learned about her, the more we were able to relate with her journey as a working artist trying to pursue her life and dreams in Brooklyn, so we decided to follow her around her neighborhood with a camera one day.

Meet the artist at her Art Party at Brooklyn Industries Williamsburg on N.8th and Bedford on Wednesday, July 16th from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. RSVP here.
