Art Walk with Gotham SideWalks

September 23, 2025 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Event Series Event Series (See All)

Local artist Rich Garr leads this exploration through the Gowanus waterfront. He is a longtime area artist focusing on public art and community. This walking tour is a multi-sensory collage featuring art, and responding to the area’s renowned history and current events.

Swoon, Mast, Guild, Wolf Tits and other funky street artists are typically featured. So are historical landmarks, architectural gems, hidden art spaces, and the work of anonymous “green guerillas” and 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 and insight. This route changes by the month, but always passes quirky art and recreational spaces (climbing, shuffleboard, ax throwing, etc.). Local artists and businesses are always highlighted- classic pillars and young innovators alike.

We walk after quick introductions at 11:30. The walk is between 1.5 – 2 hrs, & ends near the Gowanus Dredgers Boathouse. Check address location to find where the tour starts (route always changes!).

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