Brooklyn, NYC is a neighborhood rich with culture, a diverse population, and of course, a multitude of artistic mediums so abundant that the dozens of small gallery spaces can hardly contain them. In fact, sometimes they can’t, at which point art spills into the streets, taking form in graffiti, street performance, and even guerilla knitting. Regardless of whether you live in this cultural hub, or you just like to cross over the bridge for a day trip every once and a while, the art scene can sometimes seem like an all-too-overwhelming facet to explore.
Fear not out of town art-collectors and Bushwick underground art aficionados, Brooklyn’s eclectic art scene has been made accessible to everyone by WAGMAG a Brooklyn Art Guide, a free print and online publication that helps navigate the neighborhood’s many venues, galleries, and shows. Since 2001, WAGMAG has been dedicated to promoting art and exhibitions in Brooklyn, which is good news for visiting art lovers and locals alike.
Since its 2001 beginning, WAGMAG has grown into a non-profit organization dedicated to being a guide to the arts in Brooklyn’s many varied, culturally abounding communities.
