'Street/Art, Brooklyn' Gowanus art walk at Gowanus Córner Cafe

'Street/Art, Brooklyn' Gowanus art walk

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Local artist Rich Garr leads this safe [masked, socially distant] open-air exploration through the Gowanus waterfront. He is a longtime area interdisciplinary artist focusing on public art and community. Every month he collages together this art-centric walking tour responding equally to both current events and history.

Swoon, Mast, Wolf Tits and other renowned and street artists are often featured, as are historical landmarks, architectural gems, hidden art spaces, and the work of anonymous "green guerillas" and graffiti artists. While old pollution lingers, so do new issues surrounding gentrification and re-zoning. The area is changing rapidly, and this tour features real-time information & insight. This "socially distant" walk along the water passes historic businesses, hip new bars & cafes, and quirky art & recreational spaces (i.e. shuffleboard, fencing and ax throwing).

The walk ends on a literal high, overlooking the route and nearby great food and drink options (where further discussion is encouraged). Tickets often sell out, and cannot be purchased after 8am on the morning of the walk... so try to get them early!
