Art takes center stage at Grove Alley Paint Nite
September 15, 2014
The evidence of the last Grove Alley event of the season still remains along the walls of the 250-foot-deep dead-end street tucked off of Fulton Mall. There is the rainbow mural inked by Stencil1 that served as backdrop for an interactive art project for many of the nearly 2,000 people who attended Friday night’s event.
Grove Alley Paint Nite wasn’t just about the art. As with past events in the alley – including June’s Makers Nite and last year’s Nite Market and Game Nite – the event featured live music from F. Stokes, Napoleon, Legs, and DJ Chela; food truck grub from Coolhaus, Kimchi Taco, Mamu Thai Noodle, and Morris Grilled Cheese; and Brooklyn Brewery beer for purchase.
The themed events are the brainchild of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership – which has been working to revitalize the formerly underutilized space for the past year – and the founder of Gowanus Nite Market and Masai Marketing.

We’ll see you at Grove Alley next year.
