Welcome to Mister Rogers, a place where creativity roams free.
We are three friends who had a vision for our neighborhood. We felt that Crown Heights was in need of a place where the community could come together to create and experience art. We built Mister Rogers with our own hands, transforming the remnants of a shark restaurant into a multi-purpose art and event space with a multi-purpose mission. We like to party just as much as you do, so we throw events from time to time. You may have heard about our For Locals, By Locals event series, which features local painters, photographers, musicians, comedians, dancers, poets, interactive art installations, and pretty much anything you can think of.
We've hosted the premiere of Project 2x1, a documentary film about the Hassidic and West Indian communities in Crown Heights which has since been to TED and the Brooklyn Museum, the "What I Be" gallery exhibition with performances by Trevor Hall, and "Balloonacy," an all-ages dance party with three thousand LED balloons. When we aren’t throwing our own super-fun parties, we rent out the studio for private events— dance parties, dinner parties, birthday parties, engagement parties, burner parties, yoga classes, gospel karaoke— you name it.
The studio also hosts photo and video production, which includes CNN's production of The Hunt, Kalup Linzy's art film starring Macaulay Culkin and the Pizza Underground, and a range of music videos, commercial, food, fashion, and product photography.
It’s always a beautiful day in the neighborhood when you’re kicking it at Mister Rogers!
