Uncover Church Avenue Exhibit is Now Open

The opening night of the Uncover Church Avenue exhibition took place last night, Tuesday January 17th, and brought together artists, families, business owners, and community leaders to celebrate the creativity and dedication of the artists participating in the program.

Guests look at proposals for Children's Corner

Over 50 people gathered in the gallery space to view design proposals and cast their vote for the murals to appear on Church Avenue in Spring 2012. Guests were treated to a diverse assortment of dishes donated by popular Church Avenue restaurants, including curry chicken and roti from Shayna’s Restaurant, quinoa from Downtown Natural, freshly made tortilla chips and salsa from El Accuario, fresh fruit from Church Fruit Farm, and vegeterian spring rolls and dumplings from Am-Thai (opening later this month). Additional drinks and supplies were provided by Walgreens and Church Ave Pharmacy.

Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz thanked everyone involved, acknowledging the young artists participating in the program. New York State Senator Eric Adams, Council Member Matheiu Eugene, Community Board 14 District Manager Shawn Campbell  joined in support of the program.
