What is Uncover Church Avenue?
Uncover Church Avenue is a public art design competition, generously supported by AvenueNYC, to help bring attention to Church Avenue. The competition engages local artists, residents, children and merchants to take an active role in deciding the look of their neighborhood.
The winning designs will be installed on buildings and rolled down commercial gates along Church Avenue, from Argyle Road to Coney Island Avenue. The goal is to encourage the development of vibrant commercial activity along a stretch of Church Avenue with the most abundant vacancies.
The Church Avenue BID is coordinating the project under the guidance of a Design Advisory Committee, which includes representatives from local arts organizations, public schools, merchants, and community groups. The BID strongly encourages the participation of local artists with an interest in the neighborhood.
The Church Avenue Business Improvement District (BID) seeks to enhance the Church Avenue commercial district for businesses, residents and shoppers by making it cleaner and safer, promoting the neighborhood as a shopping destination and providing development resources to Church Avenue merchants and property owners. The BID runs from Coney Island Avenue to Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn.
