BSAG Reveals New Art Exhibit Tonight

The Brooklyn Streetcar Artists Group, a coalition of artists from Southern Brooklyn, is unveiling a new art installation tonight at Coney Island Hospital.

The exhibition features more than 40 pieces from 22 artists in the second floor hallway-gallery.

There will also be a presentation and Q & A session with Arthur Nash, the author of New York City Gangland. The photo-driven book follows Gotham’s gangs from bootlegging days to their heyday in the second half of the 1900s.

Amos Wengler, the folk singer known as the Bard of Coney Island, will also be on hand to perform.

And if you can’t make it tonight, the artwork will be up until January 31. It’s open to the public from Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Tonight’s event is at 6:30 p.m. on Coney Island Hospital’s second floor (2601 Ocean Parkway).
