You have one more week to see "Bringing Back Bowery: Public Art as Protest" at Howl! Happening.
The exhibit, originally set to end today, will be up through Aug. 30 now.
The group show is an outgrowth of an effort organized by Bowery artist Sono Kuwayama in June. She received permission from store owners to paint on the plywood of the boarded-up businesses along the Bowery. She then reached out to some local artists to have them create murals.
These works have been preserved and are now on display at Howl!
The gallery, 6 E. First St. between Second Avenue and the Bowery, is open Wednesday-Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Find more details about the artists at this link.
Howl! is limiting the number of visitors at any one time, and requires masks for everyone. Guests must also register upon entering and have their temperature taken.
