At the end of the November, the Takedown folks, responsible for the Bacon Takedown and many other food-themed events, are switching things up and letting people compete to see who in Brooklyn can paint the cat picture. Want in? The Brooklyn Cat Painting Takedown will take place on November 24 at Bushwick’s Active Space Gallery (566 Johnson Avenue), and will involve people hanging out and painting the best damn cat pictures they can. No one says they have to be pictures of cats that actually exists on this Earth though, if you want to get really creative about it. If you want to volunteer to paint a cat, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
