Public Art is Coming to Gowanus!

Public Art is Coming to Gowanus!

In your walks around Gowanus, you might have noticed a few more art pieces popping up over the last several months – like this colorful new mural on the side of the Dykes Lumber building, or the new "lounge area" at Ennis Playground.

These pieces, and several others throughout the neighborhood, are all part of a new Gowanus Public Art program that I’m launching with community partners at Arts Gowanus, the Old Stone House & Washington Park, and Groundswell.

We’re kicking off the series with a public art walking tour, on Sunday, September 20th. In addition to revealing the list of all the sites, this will be a great opportunity to learn more about each piece from the community organizations and artists who created each work.

Gowanus Public Art Walking Tour

Starting at the Old Stone House, walking to sites throughout Gowanus


The Gowanus Public Art Series is an important component of the Bridging Gowanus initiative. This series will create new platforms for public art, and new opportunities for artists, while at the same time showcasing what makes Gowanus “Gowanus”: the history, the Canal, the culture of creativity and the diversity of the community.

I can’t wait to share what our talented artists have created for our community.  

See you on the tour!
