Description:

Spend a spring day exploring and experiencing ART360º / FORT GREENE, on Saturday, May 14 from noon to 5 pm, where you’ll be guided to some of the most iconic street art, installations, and exhibitions in the world as you explore this vibrant, storied Brooklyn ’hood!

Highlights of the day include a bevy of FREE family-friendly activities with artists and local cultural organizations on Fowler Square Plaza (Fulton St. at Lafayette Ave.). Engage in creative fun, like screenprinting, bead-stringing, and other arts & crafts, with the likes of BRIC, Urban Glass, Brooklyn Public Library, and more! Big ReUse / DSNY will also be on hand to distribute free mulch for your beautiful spring blooms, and kids can pick out their very own art-themed books to take home, courtesy of Brooklyn Book Bodega.

And it’s not just all at Fowler Square: nearby Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church and Brooklyn Plaza Medical Center are hosting interactive programming like tours, art exhibits and even the creation of a sidewalk chalk mural!

In addition, FAB FULTON has commissioned four local artists to execute original temporary artworks on select small business storefronts; you might even get to see some of the artists in action!

ART360º / FORT GREENE is the kickoff event of the 2022 FAB FULTON season. Activities begin at 12 noon on Saturday, May 14. Fowler Square Plaza (Fulton + Lafayette) is the central hub of activity; be sure to stop there first to pick up a guide map, or grab one from posters and retailers throughout the district. (And don’t forget to use the hashtag #ART360FG in your social media posts about your day of discovery in Fort Greene!)
