Proteus Gowanus

Proteus Gowanus was an interdisciplinary gallery and reading room founded in 2005 in Gowanus, Brooklyn. The gallery, which curated year-long theme-based shows, took its name from shape-shifting Greek sea god Proteus and the nearby Gowanus Canal. Proteus Gowanus closed on June 28, 2015.[1]

In 2006, The Village Voice praised Proteus Gowanus in its annual "Best of NYC" issue, calling the gallery "[the] best proof that the Gowanus Arts District may not be entirely a real estate fiction."[2]
