Camminando | Brooklyn, Gowanus Canal and Art

Several not-profit art and cultural associations dwell in the abandoned industrial building surrounding the Gowanus Canal.

Proteus Gowanus is a non-profit interdisciplinary gallery and reading room.

The gallery presents exhibits of art, artifacts and books and hosts events that revolve around a year long theme linking the arts to other disciplines and to the community.

Proteus also displays exhibits about the Gowanus Canal history, including maps and specimens.

This year theme for Proteus exhibits is "Paradise".

Another not-profit space is Cabinet, which publishes the homonymous quarterly magazine of art and culture. Cabinets also hosts the exhibition "An Exchange with Sol LeWitt"
