About SAW

SAW provides a nontraditional outlet for emerging and mid-career Brooklyn artists to create site-specific installation in storefront settings. Exploring a symbiotic relationship between art, community, and commerce, SAW raises awareness for the arts in the underserved neighborhood of Bay Ridge, while exposing audiences to contemporary art and celebrating local business. SAW commissions new work that is original and integrative, deriving from the storefront spaces both aesthetically and conceptually.
