“Arts Gowanus ArtWalk on Atlantic Ave” returns from June 18th until June 26, 2020. The 1.5-mile self-guided ArtWalk through Brooklyn neighborhoods of Boerum Hill, Brooklyn Heights, and Cobble Hill will include the works of local artists such as paintings, photography, drawings, sculpture, and large installations. Over 100 artists will display their works in over 60 local businesses’ storefronts, windows, roll down gates, doors, and open galleries. Attendees are encouraged to walk from Fourth Avenue down to the Waterfront to enjoy art, stop for lunch and rediscover the businesses on Atlantic Avenue and the triumphant return of New York City life.

Gowanus Artwalk LogoArtWalk was introduced in October 2020, in place of the annual Arts Gowanus Open Studio event and the Atlantic Antic™, Brooklyn’s oldest and largest street festival, presented by the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation. Both annual events are known to celebrate the community and support local artists. ArtWalk personified those sentiments and also provided attendees an opportunity to explore Brooklyn and return to a sense of normalcy during the pandemic.

“Arts Gowanus ArtWalk on Atlantic Ave” is presented by Arts Gowanus, Atlantic Avenue Business Improvement District, and the Atlantic Avenue Local Development Corporation.
