Street Art Pilgrimage in Bushwick
About Street Art Pilgrimage in Bushwick
Bushwick has long enjoyed a reputation as a mecca for the world’s most illustrious street artists, who have radically altered its urban landscape. Residential, commercial, and industrial buildings have served as large-scale canvases for muralists to engage with the history, sites, and people of one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in Brooklyn. This carefully curated and independently researched tour is designed to provide greater context surrounding key works of art while introducing guests to some of Bushwick's local establishments.
Whether you’re a native New Yorker looking to find out more about the public art you walk past every day or a tourist looking for a less-conventional excursion, this 1.5-hour tour offers in-depth information presented in a fun, engaging way. Unlike other tours, we'll only be focusing on a small number of murals, allowing us to dissect the symbolism and meaning as a group. Guests should be prepared for walking around an industrial area, so, appropriate shoes and outerwear are necessary. Attendees also ought to be aware of passing cars and trucks when taking photos of the murals.
NOTE: in accordance with health and safety guidelines disseminated by the CDC and the state of New York, all guests are required to wear a mask (or face covering) and maintain social distancing protocols for the duration of the tour. As we begin offering experiences under these new conditions, your cooperation and understanding is much appreciated.
