There's a diversity of high quality art in the streets that surround the infamous Gowanus Canal. This walk highlights the most interesting art studios and spaces, placing them in context with their unique environment. . . a 150 year old industrial waterway inching towards recreational use. Property developers are making moves following the opening of the new Whole Foods Market in the center of the neighborhood, and they utilize art in surprising ways. Intriguing street art and classic graffiti pepper the walk, offering insight into Brooklyn's creative class that is often overlooked. Art history, music, urban planning, and architecture are just a few topics in this urban industrial treasure hunt. New city-sponsored public art has begun to appear, as well as a multi-million dollar arts center in a Victorian era "Batcave". No tour is ever the same. Each one is carefully curated, and spiced with insight direct from the community. Enjoy a new side of New York's creative culture from the comfort of this shabby-chic enclave. The tour ends amongst excellent food and drink options, and near public transport.

$30 per person

Rich was born in Cleveland in 1980. He spent his formative years exploring, playing sports, goofing off with friends, and making art. He studied hard enough to attend Fordham University in the Bronx, where he reveled in New York City's art and history. He met his future wife, graduated, then moved back to Ohio for a few years. Here he had his first art studio, managed an apartment complex, and studied more art and history. He moved back to NY and took work in the Brooklyn Museum's education department. Freelance cultural tours and art education followed, as did a wedding in 2009. Since that time, his art has focused on found-object collage, and he's enjoyed scattered art shows. Rich now lives in Brooklyn with his wife and two young kids. He divides his time between family, doing his own artwork, and planning creative tours for his company, Gotham SideWalks.
