A socially distanced “ArtWalk” featuring work by Gowanus artists is on display in participating storefronts, outdoor dining areas, and public spaces along a 1.5 mile stretch of Brooklyn’s Atlantic Avenue. The public exhibit is scheduled through November 1.

Stretching from the waterfront through 4th Avenue on Atlantic Ave, visitors can enjoy the art of Brooklyn-based artists like Seth King. His American Dream series is on display at Jao Social Club.
