Over 60 local artists are being exhibited throughout the four vibrant neighborhoods of Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Wallabout, and Bedford- Stuyvesant for the 15th Annual SONYA Art Walk (formerly The SONYA Stroll). The self-guided tour of fine arts studios and alternative art venues is taking place on Saturday, May 17th and Sunday, May 18th. Come view paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography and ceramics in elegant brownstones, warehouses and lofts around the Brooklyn Navy Yard and the energy-filled streets of Bedford-Stuyvesant. It is all FREE and open to the public.
