Monthly investigation of Gowanus: a unique swamp, battleground, port, brownfield, superfund recreation site in the heart of South Brooklyn

About this event

Local collage artist Rich Garr leads this safe [masked, socially distant] open-air exploration through the Gowanus waterfront. He is a longtime area interdisciplinary artist focusing on public art and community. Every month plans this art-centric walking tour responding equally to both current events and history. Unscripted. Collaborative. Always fresh.

We depart from a small shop specializing in unique local artistry, Atelier Canal, at 287 3rd Ave. Arrive early if you'd like to shop! It's just 1 block from the R train, and close to the F, G and other Barclays Center trains. We walk after quick introductions at 11:30. The walk is between 1.5 and 2 hours, and ends near the Gowanus Dredgers Boathouse.

Tickets often sell out, and cannot be purchased after 8am on the morning of the walk... so try early!

Revs, Guild, Captain Eyeliner and Billy Barnacles street art is often featured on the walk. So are historical landmarks, architectural gems, hidden art spaces, and art by anonymous "green guerillas" and renowned graffiti writers. While old pollution lingers, so do new issues surrounding gentrification and re-zoning. The area is changing rapidly, and this tour features real-time information & insight. This "socially distant" walk along the water passes historic businesses, hip new bars & cafes, and quirky art & recreational spaces (i.e. shuffleboard, climbing and ax throwing).
