Bushwick is a working class neighborhood in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. The Bushwick Collective is an outdoor gallery on the streets of Bushwick that was founded in 2012 by Joseph Ficalora, a local resident who gets owners to donate space on buildings for street art. The Collective now attracts artists from around the world as well as legendary NYC artists and local Bushwick artists. The collection is temporary, with the average mural lasting up to 12 months before being replaced. Here are a few photos of the art taken during my visit in the fall of 2016.
