ARTober 2017

“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​.

Our​ ​designer, Sergio Ordonez​, will​ ​be​ ​producing daily​ ​ink​ ​drawings​ ​for​ ​the​ ​entire​ ​month​ ​of​ ​October.​ ​Each​ ​unique​ ​piece​ ​will​ ​be​ ​given​ ​away​ ​to​ ​those that​ ​join​ ​us​ ​in​ ​#BKBartober​ (while supplies last).

Get​ ​INKvolved​ ​in​ ​4​​ ​Steps:  

1.​ ​Make​ ​a​ ​drawing​ ​in​ ​ink
2.​ ​Post​ ​it​ ​on​ ​Instagram
3.​ ​Hashtag​ ​#BKBartober,​ ​#inktober​ ​and​ ​tag​ ​us!
4.​ ​Repeat​ ​every​ ​day​ ​of​ ​October
