We have led many art runs here at Runstreet, and one of the best parts is the different vibe, crowd and interaction between the runners and art at each event. Our Bushwick street art run included hundreds of murals by incredible artists from around the world, and the best word to sum up our run is awestruck.

The Wolf Pack descended on Bushwick for an out-of-this-world art run on Sunday, July 31, 2016. We hit the world-famous street art mecca at the Bushwick Collective on our running adventure, stopping to snap shots of the amazing murals lining the streets. From a giant teddy bear to an animated bodega scene and robotic premonitions of the future, the Bushwick Collective contains hundreds of murals with art to suit all tastes, and lots of paint for thought. Our 4-mile run also took us into stretches of older graffiti in industrial areas of Bushwick and street art from the Brooklyn neighborhood's past. 

As with other Runstreet art runs, Filles + Garcons photographer Marques Jackson captured the day best, in photos. Check out his amazing art running shots below.
