Arts Gowanus ArtWalk opens on Atlantic Ave, connecting Brooklynโ€™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 include photography, paintings, drawings, sculpture, multimedia and large installations. The art will be displayed at more than 55 storefronts, outdoor dining areas, fashion, lifestyle, home design and 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, demonstrate the cityโ€™s resiliency, and celebrate and support local artists and business, this collaborative effort between Brooklynโ€™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 cancelled due to the pandemic.

A family friendly event, 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.
