Arts Gowanus ArtWalk on Atlantic Ave Brings 1.5 Miles of Art to Brooklyn Neighborhoods

Socially distanced, self-guided art exhibit featuring Brooklyn artists opens October 17th and 18th.

Arts Gowanus ArtWalk opens on Atlantic Ave, connecting Brooklyn’s vibrant neighborhoods of Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, Gowanus, and Downtown Brooklyn the weekend of October 17th and 18th.

The 1.5-mile self-guided, socially distanced ArtWalk, featuring renowned Brooklyn artists will showcase photography, paintings, drawings, sculpture, multimedia, and large installations at more than 65 storefronts, outdoor dining areas, retail shops, construction sites, residential buildings, and medical offices along Atlantic Avenue.

On opening weekend, visitors can expect pop up entertainment, live art, and promotions at businesses.

Designed to lift spirits, and celebrate and support local artists and business, this collaborative effort between Brooklyn’s arts, business, and neighborhood communities led by Arts Gowanus, the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corp, and the Atlantic Avenue Business Improvement District was imagined in place of the annual Arts Gowanus Open Studio event and 47-year-old Atlantic Antic events. Both events were canceled due to the pandemic.

ArtWalk on Atlantic Ave. is scheduled to remain open through November 1. Select works shown will be available for sale on the Arts Gowanus website when the exhibit opens.
