August 4th from 5 – 9pm
The City Reliquary Museum (Metropolitan Ave & Havemeyer St)

Join us to celebrate the opening of our latest exhibit, which celebrates the city’s finest purveyors of umbrellas. In business since 1940, Embee Shades’ products have become part of the iconic landscape of New York City, providing shade over hot dog carts, lifeguard stands, and NYC Parks Department kiosks.

Refreshments will be provided, including beer generously sponsored by another great Williamsburgh factory, the Brooklyn Brewery. Transportation for this exhibit is generously provided by Boxart Inc. Fine Art Services.
