Monthlong celebration of black art kicks off in Brooklyn
The monthlong celebration of black art kicked off in Brooklyn Friday at the Ingersoll Community Center.
The event, known as Black Artstory, got underway with residents of all ages enjoying music and art. Black Artstory Month showcases the work of black artists in an art walk along Myrtle Avenue as well as art installations in 15 local businesses.
The Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership presented the kickoff event. Those in attendance were able to create their own art and write down their hopes and dreams on postcards.
The monthlong event is in its fifth year and organizers believe it's important to Black History Month. There will be free events open to the public every Friday this month.
