EPPurcellinStudio.2013Join us as a GOS 2016 Business Sponsor and you will help add to the excitement about our beloved neighborhood; celebrate the creativity and vibrancy of the artists who make Gowanus unique; and actively support your local non-profit arts organization.

At any level of sponsorship, your business will appear in our printed and web outreach. Your support helps fund our printed guides, website, balloons, and signs that direct visitors as they explore Gowanus.

Print and Web Outreach

2014 maps smallPrinted Guides: The printed guides, featuring a map with artist and Business Sponsor listings, are used to promote the event prior to the weekend, and distributed to visitors at several “hub” locations. Visitors rely on the maps to navigate the various studio locations.  After the weekend, visitors often hold onto the maps as a record of which artists they enjoyed visiting.

Arts Gowanus Website: This is usually where visitors and media begin their understanding of the Open Studios activities, and where information resides all year long.

banner14_TerraCRG1Street Lamp Banners: These are produced professionally in conjunction with NYC GO.  Your logo appears in the bottom part of the banner, in a section pre-determined by NYC GO. Banners are installed 4 weeks prior to GOS weekend and make a significant street-level impact prior to and during the event.

Your contribution is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Click here to become a Sponsor and make this a truly incredible community event.
