BOERUM HILL — A Brooklyn art gallery is giving people a chance to stay in its Bergen Street studio apartments and get a behind-the-scenes look at its space.

The Invisible Dog Art Center is offering the experience through its Kickstarter campaign to raise $25,000 in support of its upcoming season of performances and exhibitions.

For $800 or more, two people can stay at the gallery’s studio apartments, which are typically reserved for visiting artists and performers, said Invisible Dog director Lucien Zayan.

Along with a three-night stay, people will get their name on the donor wall, a special invitation to programs and the opportunity to mingle with and learn from Invisible Dog’s 35 artists-in-residence.

The gallery, located at 51 Bergen St., had raised more than $22,000 of its goal as of Monday with only 10 days remaining on the fundraiser. The money will directly support the next season at ID, which includes six exhibitions, 12 performances, classes, events and workshops.

Invisible Dog, which opened in 2009 and has 28 work studios for artists, offers an array of rewards for people donating anywhere between $10 and $10,000, such as having their name printed on the elevator and pillars of the gallery, a VIP tour of the building and sponsorship for the entire season. 

This is the second year Invisible Dog has offered stays at its studio apartments, which are located in a neighboring building, said Zayan, adding that people have traveled from across the country and world for the experience.

Only three spots remain for the getaway, according to the campaign’s website.

“We are always looking for a good reason to go somewhere,” Zayan said. “It’s a good occasion to come and stay in Brooklyn.”
