Honky Tonk meets the avant garde in Boardwalk Renaissance, a trip down the Coney Island boardwalk of the 80's when a group of passionate young artists descended on Coney with the dream that their art might return this legendary neighborhood to its glory days. The vision of these artists – brought to life in artifacts, footage from the first Mermaid parade, and art inspired by the House under the Roller Coaster – lit a creative spark that saw Coney through desperate times and set the stage for the honky tonk neighborhood's rebirth.
Sponsored by the Coney Island Hysterical Society, City Lore, and the Coney Island History Project. Produced in tandem with the Coney Island USA's exhibit, Sodom by the Sea Salon. Check out the Brooklyn Museum's exhibit Coney Island: Vision of an American Dreamland.
