Howard Kolins, Acting Executive Director of AALDC added, “Atlantic Avenue, from Fourth Avenue to the Waterfront, is home to more than one-hundred and fifty carefully curated shops showcasing a wide-range of unique and timeless items, and restaurants — many that also have outside dining.”

ArtWalk festivities will include a unique exhibit of paintings and photographs of Endangered Species by children and adults; along with talks in cooperation with the Wild Tomorrow Fund. Other highlighted exhibits include photography by Professional Women Photographers (PWP) and paintings by the Brooklyn Watercolor Society.

“We are especially excited this year to include two special exhibits, ‘Endangered Species’ and ‘American Album,’ which exemplify the ability of art to stimulate thought and discussion, and bring about change,” explained this year’s AALDC board member and ArtWalk Committee Chair, Karen Zebulon.
