Who let the art out?

Photoville is once again unboxing a slew of amazing photography from its stuffy gallery setting and transforming the scenic Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Pier 5 into an outdoor photo exhibit featuring shipping containers, a beer garden, and food.

“While Photoville offers plenty for the photo industry insider to appreciate, it is truly a populist event,” said Blake Zidell, a Photoville spokesman.

The free attraction will feature 40 exhibitions, including photojournalism from NBC News’ Ann Curry and The New York Times, according to a spokesman for Brooklyn-based art organization United Photo Industries.

During the ten day festival, visitors can check out the photos on their lunchbreak, or go for a night out to see film screenings, panels, photography workshop (there’s a “Guide to Rock Photography!”), and a food and beer garden.

This is the second year of the festival, which drew 40,000 people to Brooklyn Bridge Park last year.

Photoville at Pier 5 of Brooklyn Bridge Park (Enter at Furman Street and Joralemon Street, www.photovillenyc.org). Sept. 19–29; hours vary. Free with $3 suggested donation.
