Join Maria Bauman, Urban Bush Women’s Director of Education and Community Engagement, in experiencing the art, spirit and food of Fort Greene on a Municipal Art Society NOCD walking tour. Urban Bush Women is a contemporary dance company creating work at the intersection of art and social change. The tour will start at their home in the Brooklyn A.R.T./NY building (home to over thirty local arts organizations), followed by a visit to neighbors including Tribal Truths original art & apparel, the Museum of Contemporary African Diasporan Art, longstanding local DARE Books and the Brooklyn Academy of Music. We will see other treasures along the way, including stops to purchase mouth-watering food to suit every palate. The New York Times describes Fort Greene as “a bastion of African-American pride and culture…Brooklyn’s latest culinary mecca…the artistic center of the borough.”

Tickets are available here. $20.
