Since opening Crest Hardware in 1962, Manny Franquinha has become an icon in the Williamsburg neighborhood through his dedication to customer service and focus on community improvement. Crest Hardware is an exemplary family business that has strengthened and transformed with their community’s ever-evolving needs and passions. As current manager of Crest Hardware and curator of the art show, Manny’s son Joe creates a unique non-traditional atmosphere to showcase the hardware inspired artwork of over 120 artists; representing areas within and beyond the borders of the five boroughs, including places as close as Massachusetts and as far as Munich, Germany.
The Crest Hardware Art Show is a unique experience appealing to a broad range of patrons while exhibiting numerous artistic mediums. The ideas and concepts in the art show are rendered on multiple creative levels, allowing for an accessible experience and journey throughout the 10,000+ square feet of indoor and outdoor retail space. Crest Hardware is retooled into a recognized art gallery from June 19th to July 30th 2010 showcases over 150 pieces.

Crest Fest 2010
On June 19th, the third annual Crest Fest will launch the 2010 Crest Hardware Art Show. As a means to give back to the community, Crest Fest is structured as a not-for-profit volunteer-only event. Proceeds from Crest Fest 2010 will support The City Reliquary Museum, located on Metropolitan Ave. This year’s program will include a long list of DJs, a live music stage, local creative art and food vendors and additional involvement from surrounding businesses and community organizations.
