Take A Virtual Street Art Tour in Brooklyn
About this FieldTrip
Take a virtual tour through Brooklyn, the mecca of street art!
Our experience will be broken up into five parts:
1: Transport to a coffee shop in Brooklyn filled with stunning artwork. There, we’ll chat about what street art means to each of us. We’ll also begin a fun ‘Lego art’ scavenger hunt featuring pieces from local sticker artist, RAD.
2: Take a guided tour through East Williamsburg and view dozens of commissioned murals, some over 40 feet in size! I’ll share amazing stories from a mix of local and international artists.
3: Travel back in time to the 1970’s to learn about NYC’s early graffiti and hip-hop scene. We’ll explore the origins of this art form– from tags and ‘Wildstyle’ pieces, to different crews and techniques.
4: Visit the Bushwick Collective, the largest outdoor street art gallery in the U.S.A. See a wide range of iconic pieces from some of our legendary artists.
5: Hop on a virtual subway ride to the Wall of Justice– a new space devoted to a powerful art movement. Bonus: Get to see some ‘creatures’ on the train with unique artwork by Subway Doodle.
About your Host Hi, my name is Ariel! I’m a 5-star rated tour guide. In my professional life, I work as a designer, artist, and street-art photographer. I have documented murals in some of the world’s largest street art hubs like London, Miami, Barcelona, Philadelphia, and my home playground of Brooklyn.
I’ve participated in mural festivals and permanent art exhibitions including Paste-Up Berlin, Wynwood Walls, MoSA, and the Atlanta Beltline Project. Last summer, I took the stage with Creative Mornings NYC to speak on this incredible art form and how it pertains to justice and community building.
I am passionate about sharing artists’ stories because they represent such a wide range of cultures, ideas, and styles. I look forward to being your art guide through the streets of Brooklyn! Find me over @madeandspotted.
