Apartment galleries have a special place in our heart. Norte Maar’s apartment gallery at the corner of Wyckoff Avenue and Suydam Street in Bushwick, served not only as the foundation of our visual art program but also a historic role in the development of the Bushwick art scene from 2006-2016. Alternative art spaces play a vital role in facilitating conversation, building community, and inspiring creative collaborations. Artist Lynn Sullivan hosts regular pop-up exhibitions in her studio and home.
