Storefront Art Walk wows Bay Ridge shoppers
The new Whitney Museum is grand, but you don’t have to go to there to see thought-provoking works of art. All you have to do is shop on Bay Ridge’s Fifth Avenue.
The commercial strip has been turned into an art gallery for a special exhibition in which artists collaborate with merchants to create paintings, photographs, and sculpture that is placed in shop windows as part of a project called the Storefront Art Walk (SAW).
The Sixth Annual SAW opened on Saturday with a ceremony in front of the offices of Community Board 10 at 8119 Fifth Ave. Fifteen merchants are participating in the project this year. The exhibition will run from now until June 28.
