Willoughby Windows v 2.0


Vacant Brooklyn Block Becomes Street Art Gallery

Willoughby Windows transforms 13 vacant storefronts into a street level gallery, bringing art directly to the community. Over 15 well known artists, all with roots in street art, have contributed to this project, most creating site specific works.
This network of visual experiences can help redefine how people visiting, working and living in Downtown Brooklyn think about and interact with their environment during a time of transition.

The first exhibit, opened in July 10, 2009 with much fanfare. The exhibit was a welcome addition to the community and helped enliven the street and neighborhood. People from around the world have come to visit the installations, with great acclaim. Read more here
