Back by popular demand, “Arts Gowanus ArtWalk on Atlantic Avenue” is set to return the weekend of June 18th running through to June 26th. The 1.5-mile self-guided exhibition of art on the Avenue will travel through Brooklyn’s neighborhoods of Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, and Cobble Hill, including the work of Gowanus and other artists with paintings, photography, drawings, sculpture, large installations, and special themed exhibits and events.  Over 100 artists will show their work inside over 70 local businesses as well as in business windows, and outdoor public spaces. Delight in viewing non-stop art from Fourth Avenue to the Waterfront.  As you tour, be sure to stop for lunch or a refreshing beverage at one of Atlantic Avenue’s distinctive restaurants or cafés, while you also rediscover the wonderful businesses on Atlantic Avenue and enjoy the triumphant return of New York City life.


ArtWalk is sponsored in part by Investors Bank, Collier West, Hollow Nickel, Optimum Health Physical Therapy, and Why Not Art.
