Coney Island is a NYC icon for all the reasons we love this city. It’s wild, exciting, fun, gritty, unique and beautiful — especially to artists — like no other place.

About

The Art of Coney Island 3 is the latest edition of BWAC’s popular series, a juried show inspired by the city’s favorite destination for summer fun. Coney Island is a universally loved Brooklyn icon, a summer outing for New Yorkers for the past 201 years. It has always fascinated artists who are drawn to its unique charms, and wild, exciting, gritty beauty. Coney Island 3 celebrates all the attractions of the boardwalk; the sideshow, mermaid paraders, the Cyclone, Nathan’s hot dogs, and of course, the beach. Highlights will include sideshow banners painted by Coney Island royalty Marie Roberts; 3D dioramas created by Luis "Inca" Ramos and Erin Mathewson; plus photos, paintings, and sculpture by more than 90 artists. The show sprawls across two floors of the expansive 25,000 sq. ft. BWAC galleries in Red Hook and truly will have something for everyone. Stop by opening day and you may catch a mermaid and possibly Jelly Boy the Clown.
