“Perhaps the mission of an artist is to interpret beauty to people—the beauty within themselves.”-Langston Hughes
With each piece of art serving as a visual history into the culture of our present, BKB aims to push imagination, passion, and physical potential.
Since BKB’s inception in 2009 the boundaries of art and culture have been intentionally pushed. The line between satisfaction and evolution has been drawn over and over again; constantly erased, thickened, moved, and restructured while always boldly, and emphatically, crossed.
Art not only serves as a pillar of Brooklyn Boulders but as an integral stone in the foundation of a culture almost a decade in the making. Without creativity we deprive our community of innovation and without art we lack transformation.
BKB is stoked to bring you ARTober–a month of showcasing art at BKB. We invite you to join us in tapping our artistic side as we highlight art at BKB. To kick us off, we were inspired by #inktober and the creation of daily, ink drawings.
Get to know BKB member Asli Uludag, a Turkish Chicago-based artist and climber. She recently worked with our resident artist Caleb Freese on a new mural and we catch up with her on climbing and what she’s working on.
