on Atlantic Avenue 


Launched to great success during the pandemic in October 2020, "Arts Gowanus ArtWalk on Atlantic Avenue" was brought back for two weeks in June 2022.

Once again, the 1.5 mile self-guided exhibition of art on the Avenue brought thousands of visitors to Brooklyn's neighborhoods of Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, and Cobble Hill.

From Fourth Avenue to the Waterfront, art was everywhere. 



  • Adam Yauch Park- 27 State Street “My Father and Me” a group exhibition that celebrated Father’s Day with photos of people and their fathers or father figures.

  • Hoyt Street Garden, 98 Hoyt Street, “Stoop Stories”, a documentary storytelling project designed to connect, support, and celebrate NYC neighbors, displayed a Community Collective piece to share local stories.

  • The Brooklyn Detention Center construction wall featured photography by dozens of artists reproduced 6'x6' vinyl banners.

  • 388 Atlantic Avenue, “Queer Art ” feature celebrated Pride, curated by artist and educator Jan Rattia.  This exhibition featured five queer artists working in black and white photos and videos exploring issues related to queer community building, identities, anxieties, and history.

  • Brooklyn Pride was awarded the Second Annual Pride Award at The Atlantic BKLN, 333 Atlantic Avenue. Mickey Heller, Co-Chair of Brooklyn Pride accepted the award on behalf of the organization. Special performances at The Atlantic BKLN during ArtWalk included rhythmic dancer Tamangoh's Urban tap 'Jazzamazon' and artist Zenon TeaVee hosting a night of drag queens, comedians,and music.

  • 423 Atlantic Avenue, “The Lost Sheep” by artist Hannah Robinett, a sister mural to the “Good Samaritan” heart mural she painted for ArtWalk 2020. The mural is inspired by The Lost Sheep parable about a shepherd who leaves his flock of 99 sheep in order to find the 1 that is lost “I don’t think I’m alone in feeling disoriented and confused - sometimes even lost - with the state of our world. This mural is a visual sign of encouragement, searching, and hope,” Hannah expresses.

  • Artist Kathryn Sheldon reacted to discovering her own her artwork for the first time while experiencing ArtWalk.


  • Why Not Art, gallery in Gowanus Brooklyn displayed three exhibitions at the Nu Hotel, 85 Smith Street including Abstract on Atlantic, Let's Chat About Climate Change, and The Portrait Project.
