|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 am on Saturday, repeating until August 31, 2023


The Rise is Art on the Ave NYC’s newest exhibition. It takes place in Washington Heights along Broadway between 169th and 170th as well as along W181st St.

This is an interactive gallery walk that viewers can enjoy from the sidewalk. Art on the Ave NYC transforms vacant storefronts into street-facing mini art galleries for all to enjoy. 26 local artists are featured in this exhibition many from the neighborhood. All the art is for sale with all proceeds going directly to the artists. Artists have recorded audio messages for the public that can be heard via a QR code label at each piece. There is also signage at each location which includes a map of the exhibition and messages from the Washington Heights BID and the curator of the show, Alexis Mendoza.

Exhibition ends August 31st, 2023.

Art on the Ave Gallery walks will be announced shortly but anyone can see the exhibition any time.
