SAW was created in 2010 as a way to showcase the diverse community of Bay Ridge and give it a unique platform for engagement and dialogue with the visual arts. By supporting and promoting emerging local artists and celebrating local Bay Ridge businesses, SAW broadly explores the intersection between commerce, art and community. While Bay Ridge is home to many artists, the neighborhood is under-served and underfunded in terms of public arts spending and grants.
The artists were selected by a jury of six based on artistic merit, feasibility, and an ability to successfully engage with the Bay Ridge community. The members of the jury included Alonsa Guevara, co-owner of Bay Ridge Art Space, James Raczkowski, co-owner of Bay Ridge Art Space, Jeannine Bardo, founder of the Stand Project and a 2015 SAW artist, Mollie Flanagan, Program Manager/Curator of The NARS Foundation, Alicia Debrincat, founding Editor of ArtFile Magazine, and John Ros, founder of galleryEll.
