An eventful space located on 1094 Broadway in Brooklyn, The Living Gallery hosts a collaborative community in which visual and performance art as well as music thrive. Described as “a space where passion meets action,” The Living Gallery was founded by Nyssa Frank in April 2012, and exists today as a place where artists and creators can let their dreams manifest.

Through classes, workshops, and exhibitions, artists are encouraged to learn, grow, and present their work within the gallery. Its facade is also a work of art on its own, displaying rotating murals by different artists.
