Rich Garr  Community based art walks that stray off the beaten path of typical tours. Specializing in Gowanus, Brooklyn & Manhattan's Lower East Side.

#LuckyRabbit- thanks for chatting us up on today's #LowerEastSide art walk. Loved that we knew #Falkor, and that you're bring him into the hood. #LUCKdragon #NYCstreetart #streetart #neverendingstory #graffiti #nycgraffiti #mural

During last @artsgowanus some of my favorite art was done by @theredkinginleather. On last Saturday's monthly art walk he rolled up on his motorcycle & spoke to us about Park Slope creeping into #Gowanus. Wish you were all there... it was great. Luckily, there's a podcast being made of this tour, so stay tuned. Also- swipe to see Loathsome Luke, who is made using black magic. And who I took home for my lucky 4 year old son. If you can't find Luke in the streets, google #mutopiatoys and order for $19.81. #brooklynstreetart #nycart

1990 #NYCstreetart from artist & early #graffiti #art collector #MartinWong- part of a fabulous #LowerEastSide show highlighting creative NYC in the 70s & 80s inc. incredible paintings by #JaneDickson #JamesRomberger & #AntonVanDalen

Trying to hear a packed @jimosman2788 artist talk @lesleyhellergallery #LowerEastSide [bet/ #Gowanus and LES art walks] today. He's clearly having a moment. #nycart making his own found objects; "are you a hoarder?" etc comments coming from the curious audience. #assemblageart #sculpture #woodwork

So glad I caught the @benpedersonpics show @oygprojects Gowanus on its last day. Great #nycart gallery, great #art. Wild, irregular #mobiles & barnacled #stabiles. Congrats to all involved!

Next art walk Saturday 11am, starting @gowanussouvenirshop (like the 2nd Sat. of every month). Get tix at my website or via @gowanusdredgers site. I'm plotting it out now. #streetart #fineart #brooklynhistory #walkingtour... & a with a soundtrack to boot😲

What an amazing show up on the Lower East Side! Visit today starting at noon (till midnight) or tomorrow (they're showing the super bowl!), then it's over. Lots of good affordable art, and affordable drinks... and the cash goes straight to the artists. #streetart #nycart #publicart #graffiti #urbanart #wheatpaste #pasteup mania @198allenstreet

Longtime friend and oft-featured artist on #LowerEastSide art walks @sacsix has an opening tonight. Don't feel obligated, but know its a one-time chance to see an amazing array of #wheatpaste #pasteup #streetart #NYCstreetart AND drink beer that supports a corner of the #nycart world often overlooked. ... And if you're around @prattinstitute visit their library show celebrating #tarotcards #illustrator #pamelacolmansmith set up by old Gowanus art walk staple curator @melissastaiger. #lookatart #nyc #yourwelcome 💋👈

Working with some duckboat stencils tonight in the #artstudio. #collage #collageart #hunting #workinprogress #nycart The #vessels series #nautical #seascape #manscape #boatscape #escape

#happymlkday - esp. to those looking beyond themselves & into their communities. I found it appropriate to dig up this old @chrissoria @gswellmural #brooklynstreetart pic from a while back. #spreadlove #respectpeople #nycart #publicart #streetart #mural #justice #mandala
