Michael Sorgatz launched Art in Brooklyn to provide an online venue to display work by local artists. Art in Brooklyn focuses on artists who are dedicated to their craft, seeking a larger audience, and exist outside the scope of traditional media. The site has grown through supporting the local arts community and has expanded to include curated exhibits in venues throughout Brooklyn. Over 200 artists have been profiled and over 700 events have been featured, to create a snapshot of an exceptionally vibrant and active art world. The mission of the site evolved in 2012 with the launch of Art in New York City to work with artists throughout the greater metro area.
Michael Sorgatz is a painter who lives in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.
