This year, OHNY also partnered with ARTNOIR, a collective of self-described “culturalists” who work to expand the definition of artistic expression and subvert the traditional arts narrative. Throughout the weekend, ARTNOIR: City of Cultural Exchange will feature sites that explore the relationship between identity and place, such as the Black Lady Theater, Marjorie Elito’s Parlor Jazz, Louis Armstrong House Museum, and the Lewis H. Latimer House Museum.
Additionally, there are many walking and bicycle tours, exploring infrastructure, Brooklyn’s Cultural District, Central Park, Concrete Plant Park, Freshkills Park, Google’s offices, the New York Times building, Red Hook, and more. You can see the complete list here.
