Open Source Gallery – Interesting BK Gallery

The Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn is not known for its art galleries, but there is a hidden gem within this residential neighborhood: Open Source Gallery. This non-profit gallery space was founded in 2008 by artist Monika Wuhrer and since then has had hundreds of artists come through its space. With monthly exhibitions that emphasize accessible, sustainable, and socially engaging art, you are sure to see something interesting every time you walk by those doors. They also have a really amazing after-school kids art program, which I happen to work for, where they teach kids all throughout the city how to combine art and technology. 

I love finding organizations that combine art and social justice. Open Source Gallery works hard to have a diverse group of artists from all over the world come through their space. They also have many neighborhood events such as a story telling evenings, and town hall type meetings where the whole neighborhood can get together and discuss issues that are important to them. Visiting Open Source Gallery is guaranteed to be a unique experience.
