Today DRAW NYC landed at street festival—a NYC DOT Weekend Walk—hosted by the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership. Participation made possible by NYC DOT with support from Blick Art Materials. We set up next to staff from the local Blick store on Myrtle St. and we featured some drawing prompts created by The Drawing Center. DRAW NYC is made possible citywide in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Thanks also to Lisa Brown and Daniel Handler. As always, our work on the street is also supported by our individual donors who generously contribute amounts small and large to make this happen on the street.

About our “new” name… Street Lab.

Street Lab began in Boston in 2006. In 2011, we moved the organization to NYC and launched the Uni Project, which was a portable reading room that roamed the city. In 2020, we are re-introducing our original name Street Lab to tie all this work together going forward, with much more to come.
