Following on the success of its Dick Chicken!-curated street art installation during Art Basel Miami back in December (pictured), Armory Week satellite fair Fountain New York will be doing the same (or similar) when it takes over Pier 66 and the Frying Pan next week for its sixth annual installment.

Specifically, in addition to the typically promising slate of local and international galleries and non-profits participating, and a slew of artists’ projects, ten world-renowned street artists are collaborating on a 100-feet-long mural that will greet visitors as they arrive.

The ten participating street artists, whose works you likely see daily on your travels around Brooklyn, are: Chris Stain, Dick Chicken!, Faro, Gaia, Shark Toof, Clown Soldier, Love Me, Ellis G, Alessandro Echevarria and Lee Trice. So be sure to stop by (Fountain runs March 4-6, 12-7pm, $10) on your way between fancier, more expensive, less fun art fairs. Also, grab a beer, you’re on/in a bar!
