The sixth annual Atlantic Avenue Artwalk this weekend has the same 200 or so artists, the same wide range of studio openings, and plenty of film screenings and live music — but this year, it’s a “recession-friendly event,” thanks to plenty of freebies and discounted menus at restaurants.
“Atlantic Avenue Artwalk has become a creative ‘stimulus’ more than ever — providing high-quality programming and free events to audiences while encouraging them to shop, dine and support the arts at the same time,” said founder Lisa Shimamura.
The paint-splattered excitement (and sculpture like Alex Racine’s work, pictured) stretches from Hicks Street to Fourth Avenue and includes the unveiling of a workshops to let your creative juice flow, a walking tour of public art in Park Slope and Gowanus and the seemingly unrelated, yet thoroughly irresistible, offer of two-for-one admission at the New York City Transit Museum.
Atlantic Avenue Artwalk, Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7, from 1 to 6 pm. For info and a map, visit www.atlanticavenueartwalk.com.
