Bushwick Open Studios is next weekend, but you can start planning your route now with a handy, mapped, searchable directory. See the galleries, studios, and apartments of more than 500 participating local artists, swinging open to invite you in.

Or, you know, check “free food” and graze. There’s also a free “Bushwick Open Studios 2012” App available to help you with your itinerary but nifty it may be, refrain from stalking around with your face glued to your phone when you actually have a chance to have a real, social, exploratory experience.

The sixth Bushwick Open Studios is slated for June 1-4, but there’s a preview/benefit show/raffle this Sunday at the Grace Exhibition Space at 940 Broadway, 6-9 p.m.
