If you aren’t yet familiar with the Brooklyn Streetcar Artists’ Group (BSAG), you should be. They are an incredible nonprofit in Brooklyn that has as its mission to “create opportunities for artists and art lovers of all ages.”
The BSAG started because its parent company, the Brooklyn City Streetcar Company (BCSC) wanted to promote its mission to get electric trolleys onto the streets of Brooklyn. They started mounting exhibitions of fine art to spread their message.
BSAG is, today, one of the premier artists’ groups in the southern part of Brooklyn and they have a regular gallery space in the Coney Island Hospital.
They have recently started an Arts Enrichment Program by joining together with the NYC Department of Probation. Through this Arts Enrichment Program, they are offering free art classes to interested students who are referred to them by the Department of Probation.
As a result of their efforts, the BSAG will feature their Arts Enrichment Program’s artwork today at the Coney Island Hospital, 2601 Ocean Parkway, 2nd Floor, Main Building at 5pm.
It’s certainly a worthwhile program and a wonderful way to support our residents!
