    May 31 2006 | 10:58 pm
    Brooklyn's first art and technology complex, integrating a teaching center, performance space, gallery and robotics studio.
    The League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots (LEMUR) will unveil its new headquarters, LEMURplex, a cutting-edge high tech lab for music and robotics, where artistic expression and technology will join together.
    In two events on Sunday, June 11, 2006, LEMURplex will open its doors in Brooklyn, N.Y. We will host a Family Open House from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and an evening reception from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The media and the public are welcome to tour the facility, see LEMUR's musical robots in action and learn about classes and other offerings at the facility.
    The 3,000-square-foot complex will feature the latest in revolutionary technology for electronic art and music. LEMUR's new integrated shop will incorporate fabrication, software and electronics facilities in one location. Once open, LEMURplex will be uniquely equipped to become a leading international center for art, technology and robotics.
    The new space will be a major learning center for adults and children interested in the convergence of art and technology. Beginning in July, LEMURplex will hold classes on a variety of hi-tech subjects, including robotics (both for children and adults), interactive music and video software, electronics and computing for artists and much more. Some of New York's finest art and technology instructors will be teaching the classes, and they'll be on hand for the open house and reception.
    Beginning in the fall, LEMURplex will also host new musical performances and electronic art gallery shows. The site will be unique to New York in combining a gallery, performance space and teaching space in one location.
    LEMURplex is located at 461 3rd Ave, between 9th and 10th Streets, between the four vibrant neighborhoods of Park Slope, Carroll Gardens, Gowanus and Red Hook.
