Every year the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership partners with local artists and arts organizations to present the month long celebration, and activate the main street with public art & FREE cultural programming. This year, Myrtle Avenue is working with Black Gotham Experience (BGX) an immersive multimedia project that celebrates the impact of the African Diaspora on New York City with walking tours, a photography-based graphic novel series, and events. The lineup of programs for the 2019 Black Artstory exhibited artwork and history woven into experiences that brought Black History Month and New York Fashion Week into one discussion.

The FRONT and CENTER/ED Exhibition keeps the conversation going as it moves from Putnam's Lower Level to the Black Gotham Experience Studio April 11th 7-10pm.
