The Great Wall of Brooklyn is an independent artist-run public art organization that launched in the historic Fort Greene neighbourhood on May 9, 2009. It features the work of Brooklyn-based and international artists. Located on the side of a four-story building at the corner of Myrtle and Vanderbilt Avenues, The Great Wall introduces large-scale art made in Brooklyn to the community each quarter.
