WHO IS PLANNING BROOKLYN’S FUTURE?
Brooklyn Heights Association Executive Director Peter Bray.
The Brooklyn Heights Association’s (BHA) annual meeting promises to be especially compelling this year, given that the massive Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE) reconstruction project is fast-approaching. The event takes place on Tuesday, Feb. 26, 7 p.m. at St. Francis College. The meeting will both inform neighborhood residents on the ongoing BQE saga, and bring attention to the wider questions the process engenders. The New York Times’ Ginia Bellafante will engage in a conversation with three distinguished individuals who bring deep planning experience and different perspectives to this year’s theme: Who is Planning Brooklyn’s Future?
Promenade Highway with a less environmentally destructive approach to the BQE reconstruction. The city’s favored plan would temporarily replace the beloved Heights Promenade with a temporary six-lane bypass. This would bring the truck-clogged interstate, with its noise and pollution, to neighborhood street level for six to eight years. BHA will also bestow its Community Service Awards to organizations or individuals who have made significant contributions to the neighborhood’s quality of life and enhance its spirit of community. Tom Stewart, host at Thirteen WNET New York, will emcee the award ceremony.
Panelists include: • Tom Angotti, professor emeritus at Hunter College’s Urban Policy and Planning Department and the Graduate Center, City University of New York • Michelle de la Uz, executive director of the Fifth Avenue Committee and member of the NYC City Planning Commission • Alexander Garvin, who was formerly responsible for planning the rebuilding of the World Trade Center at the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation and served as a member of the City Planning Commission
• Dozier Hasty, publisher of the Brooklyn Daily Eagle • The volunteers who comprised the BQE design build team that went to Albany • Judith Moch, CAMBA, for the Respite Bed Program that operates the homeless shelters in Brooklyn Heights • Jane Woland, who operates the food pantry at the First Presbyterian Church The meeting is open to the general public. It takes place at St. Francis College’s Founders Hall, 180 Remsen St., Brooklyn Heights, on Tuesday, Feb. 26. Refreshments will be served afterwards.

DOT: Alt BQE Plan Will Not Block Brooklyn Bridge View After All
Brooklyn Heights Association President Martha Bakos Dietz.
By Mary Frost Brooklyn Heights Press
The NYC Department of Transportation (DOT) admitted on Tuesday that the agency goofed when it said the Brooklyn Heights Association’s plan for a temporary Brooklyn-Queens Expressway (BQE) bypass would travel over the Brooklyn Bridge pedestrian walkway. A DOT spokesperson said that with multiple BQE proposals out there, there was a miscommuni-
cation about the alternate route proposed by the neighborhood association. The spokesperson said DOT understood the need for a retraction. The brouhaha started when another Brooklyn Heights civic group, A Better Way NYC, released a rendering showing that the city’s preferred BQE bypass would cross over the pedestrian path on the Brooklyn Bridge.

A solo exhibition of Min Liu’s animations and installations. Curated by Thomas D. Rotenberg, TANGIBLE examines the format of animation/ moving image by exploring the relationship between its digital representation and analog and physical experience. Blurring the boundary between the visible and the tangible, Min Liu offers her unique styles and fresh perspectives on what animation is, and could be. When: Daily through February 28th, Mon-Fri – 9 a.m. – 10 p.m., Sat – Sun: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Made in N.Y. Media Center (30 John Street)
JOHN MONTI: HEARTS AND STEMS
A solo show of sculpture by John Monti. In this exhibition Monti brings the entire gallery space into play
with a profuse installation of wall-mounted sculptures of hearts and flowers. When: Thursdays-Sundays through March 10th, 1 – 6 p.m. Where: Bushwick/STUDIO10 (56 Bogart Street)
BRIC BIENNIAL: VOLUME III, SOUTH BROOKLYN EDITION This third iteration of the BRIC Biennial presents artists living and working in South Brooklyn, including the neighborhoods of Park Slope, Gowanus, Sunset Park, and Bay Ridge, highlighting the significance of Brooklyn as a place where artists create work and develop their careers. When: Tuesdays-Sundays through April 7th, Tue-Fri: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m., Sat – Sun :11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: Fort Greene/ BRIC House Gallery (647 Fulton Street)

Dashper: The Future. This is the late artist’s second solo exhibition at the gallery and commemorates ten years of his passing. The exhibition will highlight select art works produced during the 1990s and early 2000s. When: Wednesdays-Saturdays through February 16th, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Minus Space (16 Main Street, Suite A)
ARCHITECTURE OF MEMORY: CHERYL MOLNAR SOLO The artist’s process begins with documentation: Molnar photographs locations newly traveled and well-known and loved. These photographs are digitally stitched together, combining landscapes with structures from various "memories." This is the way we experience memories: we confuse the place and time, the structures bleed together, places patched together in our minds the way Molnar collages photographs, like concretized memories. These are the improbable landscapes of our memory, given physical shape. On view for “The Architecture of Memory” will be recent collaged paintings on panel as well as small-scale editioned work that reveal much of the early stages of her process, much like
“sketches” but done through photographs and digital manipulation. When: Through February 22nd Where: Greenpoint/Arete Venue and Gallery (67 West Street)
UNCANNY TALES This exhibition presents new figurative painting that hybridizes the uncanny with caricature, exaggeration, and invented mythologies. The artists included in this show have discovered new worlds that reveal anxiety, mystery, and eeriness that reflect our current state of political unrest. When: By appointment Where: DUMBO/Agency (20 Jay Street, Suite M14)
METAMORPHOSIS OF FAILURE Rachelle Mozman Solano takes on iconic artist Paul Gauguin by casting him as a self-doubting disappointment in his own biographical story, seeking affirmation from the ambivalent women who he aims to dominate. By putting forth alternative narratives, Collura and Mozman Solano envision women as empowered protagonists of their own storylines. For her film and photography project Metamorphosis of Failure, Mozman Solano takes as a point of departure
the Museum of Modern Art’s 2014 exhibition of Paul Gauguin’s works on paper that he made in the South Pacific toward the end of his life. Mozman Solano was impressed by the mythology perpetuated by the museumography and curation of the exhibition, particularly the narrative about Gauguin’s work based on identity transformation during his immersion in Polynesian culture. Rather than rehashing this account, Mozman Solano instead explores the history of Gauguin’s mixed background (French and Peruvian). The work probes Gauguin’s obsession with racial purity, which she speculates may have stemmed from his multiethnic identity and created a conflicted sense of self. Mozman Solano’s film is based on fantasies of Gauguin’s five-week stay in Panama before his journey to Polynesia. When: Wednesdays-Sundays through February 24th, 12 – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Smack Mellon (92 Plymouth Street)
ONLY THE BEST As soon as you walk in, what seems like a particularly melodious cacophony of photographs, gives way to a configuration that takes the spectator through them organically. Each artist’s
unparalleled point of view comes through. Part of this season’s exploration of thematic approaches to collecting, Only The Best highlights new or unexhibited pieces by gallery artists, and takes its name from the wonderful Baron Von Fancy piece that both announces and critiques the exhibition. There are certain qualities particular to photography, and each of these artists is addressing one if not more. Fred Cray uses the photographic materials to confound and to repeat elements. This piece is literally collaged, with a cutout moon placed adjacent to the original print. Both hover over a silhouetted dog. David Brandon Geeting continues his still lifes that look like collages, but aren’t. S.B. Walker’s contribution is a landscape that persists in appearing like something else. These are qualities that make photography particularly enticing, appealing, and different from other art. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through February 28th, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Janet Borden Inc (91 Water Street)

IN PLANE VIEW Showcasing the photographs of Max de Esteban and Doug Fogelson. Doug Fogelson’s ‘Forms and Records’, explores the physicality and science of the photograph, through a formal exploration of objects, and their representation as photograms. He works with objects that either have a link to the natural world, or with outmoded technology such as vinyl records and architectural forms. The exhibition includes seven unique silver gelatin photograms and 6 color, limited edition prints made from color transparency photograms. The photograms are created through a series of carefully considered multiple exposures, with the color work incorporating additive color mixing, and blending of light. When: Wednesdays-Saturdays through March 10th, 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/Klompching Gallery (89 Water Street)
A SOUND OF LIGHT, APPEARING AROUND THE BEND In this all-encompassing
maze-like installation by Barbara Campisi, LEDs form colored lines of light when reflected off translucent ‘walls’, confounding any sense of orientation. The viewers, as they walk inside the piece, complete it through their process of discovery.

When: Thursdays-Saturdays through March 23rd, 2 – 6 p.m., Where: Park Slope/Open Source Gallery (306 17th Street)
ENRICO RILEY: NEW WORLD
The paintings are part of an unfolding and evolving cycle that investigates themes of historical and contemporary violence, martyrdom, grief, and the middle passage within a spatial domain. Enrico Riley challenges viewers to decipher and contextualize his work’s fractured narratives. For many Americans, exposure to the plethora of recent media examples of reflexive violence perpetrated on African-Americans has blurred the boundaries between the historical record with which our country is so familiar and the problems still facing contemporary culture today. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through March 23rd, 11 a.m.

LIVING INSIDE SANCTUARY For two years, Brooklyn-based photojournalist Cinthya Santos Briones has photographed undocumented migrants who face orders of deportation. By taking up asylum in houses of worship, often for indefinite periods of time, these individuals and their families have found both a refuge and a provisional prison. Santos Briones’ photographs are an intimate depiction of living in a state of
uncertainty. Rather than present portraits of people in hopeless situations, she has chosen to convey the universal routines of their everyday lives. Birthdays are celebrated, siblings tease one another, and meals are shared. When: Daily through April 7th, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. Where: Green-Wood/GreenWood Cemetery (500 25th Street)

WHEN WE WERE STRANGERS
What does it mean to be in love? For eight years, in images, writing and life, plain and simple, we have tried to tease out the answer. Love is a cliche, an idea so easy to imagine but impossible to grasp. Like an overripe fruit, it collapses with a bit of pressure into cloying sweetness and the faint sense of something lost. At its most basic, falling in love means cleaving away something of yourself and becoming something else. It’s painful and hard, but also carries the potential for profound transformation. When WAWere Strangers is the first part of a lifelong project deconstructing love through the prism of our relationship. This first chapter is a love poem of sorts, one that charts what happens when two people attempt to become something more and less than that, when we are more unknown stranger to each other than anything else. But love is an ouroboros that eats the past that came before it. Who was I before you? We are interested in the frayed edges, the messy intersections, the elements of ourselves lost and new facets gained in the process, and the limits to all of that. When: Tuesdays-Saturdays through March 22nd, 11 a.m. 6 p.m. Where: DUMBO/United Photo Industries (16 Main Street)

ethnicity, disability, and politics, all of which were at the heart of her work. Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving is the largest U.S. exhibition in ten years devoted to the iconic painter and the first in the United States to display a collection of her clothing and other personal possessions, which were rediscovered and inventoried in 2004 after being locked away since Kahlo’s death, in 1954.

SOPHIA SHALMIYEV: MOTHER WINTER
KIDS WEEK BROOKLYN: BIRDS OF PREY
Mother Winter is the story of Sophia’s emotional journeys as an immigrant, an artist, and a woman raised without her mother. Born to a Russian mother and an Azerbaijani father, Shalmiyev grew up under the stark oppressiveness of 1980s Leningrad. An imbalance of power and widespread anti-Semitism in her homeland led her father to steal Shalmiyev away, emigrating to America and abandoning her estranged and alcoholic mother, Elena. At age 11, Shalmiyev found herself on a plane headed west, motherless and terrified of the new world unfolding before her. Mother Winter depicts in urgent vignettes Sophia’s years of travel, searching, and forging meaningful connection with the worlds she occupies. The result is a searing meditation on motherhood, displacement, gender politics, and the pursuit of

Stroll with us through the Prospect Park South Historic District.
Eye on PROSPECT PARK SOUTH

Five Fab Spots to See in Landmarked Prospect Park South Developer Dean Alvord Invented the Neighborhood By Lore Croghan INBrooklyn
Viva Las Victorians. Did you know America’s largest concentration of Victorian houses can be found in Flatbush? They’re in a cluster of mini-neighborhoods, one of which is Prospect Park South. What a picturesque place. Right before the turn of the 20th century, Dean Alvord bought 50 acres of land from the Dutch Reformed Church and an old-line Brooklyn family, the Bergens. He turned this tierra into Prospect Park South. According to the city Landmarks Preservation Commission’s 1979 designation report about the Prospect Park South Historic District, Alvord wanted to incorporate “rural beauty” into the city blocks of the neighborhood he was creating. Alvord was born in Syracuse and developed several neighborhoods in Rochester before moving to Brooklyn. The stand-alone houses he and other builders constructed in Prospect Park South epitomize gracious suburban living — though they’re located deep in the heart of busy Brooklyn. Most of the homes have lots of bedrooms. And pretty porches for enjoying the soft spring air. And lush, landscaped lawns. And driveways and garages. One great way to savor the sights of this Instagram-worthy corner of Victorian Flatbush is to walk up and down every street in the landmarked district. It’s not very big. Its boundaries are Church Avenue, Buckingham Road, Beverley Road and Stratford Road. We picked out five fab spots to look for on your stroll. We could have picked out 50 spots — and that wouldn’t begin to cover the neighborhood’s architectural eye candy.
Which Way to the Japanese House? Such a pretty pair, these two. They’re situated on the shortest street in the Prospect Park South Historic District — Buckingham Road.
On one side of the street, there’s a grand, oldfashioned mansion with two-story Ionic columns flanking the front door. On the other side of the street, there’s the beloved Japanese House, as it’s nicknamed. The mansion with the columns, which is 104 Buckingham Road, was designed in 1901 by an architect on Alvord’s staff named Carroll H. Pratt. The last time the house was sold, which was 2008, the price was $1.85 million, city Finance Department records show. The wood and stucco Japanese House, at 131 Buckingham Road, resembles a pagoda. Alvord had the unusual house designed as a three-dimensional advertising tool to promote the neighborhood. It was featured in a 1903 ad in a magazine called Country Life in America. Architecture firm Kirby, Petit & Green designed the house. An often-repeated story about the house is that it was built for the Japanese Ambassador of that era — but that’s an urban myth, a 2014 posting on Untapped Cities’ website says.
On one side of the street, there’s a wooden Swiss chalet. Or, more precisely, 100 Rugby Road is Petit’s architectural interpretation of a chalet that’s on a flat lawn on a city street instead of in an Alpine meadow. He designed the house for Alvord. On the other side of the street, there’s hand-
some 101 Rugby Road. It has a big, round front porch and a circular turret with a row of windows on its second floor. The top of the turret looks kinda like it’s wearing a crown.

A Marvelous Marlborough Road Trio We’ve never seen any other house that looks quite like lemon-hued 215 Marlborough Road. Prospect Park South’s developer would love to hear an observation like that if he were alive. Alvord wanted all the houses in Prospect Park South to look unique and special. The concept of cookie-cutter homes was anathema to him. John J. Petit designed French Gothic Revivalstyle 215 Marlborough Road for Alvord in 1901, the designation report about the Prospect Park South Historic District says. Petit was of course a partner in the firm that designed the Japanese House. The house at 215 Marlborough Road is part of a terrific trio of eye-pleasing homes. The home next to it, 203 Marlborough Road, is painted deep green. By the way, Petit designed this house, too. This house changed hands in a 2015 estate sale. The price was $2.03 million, Finance Department records indicate. The third house in the trio, 197 Marlborough Road, is partly painted a blue hue. The bottom floor of the house is made of red bricks. The turret on one corner of the property is very photogenic.
Another spot that shows off the historic district’s eye-pleasing architectural variety is in the middle of Rugby Road.

Eye on Prospect park south Five Fab Spots to See in Landmarked Prospect Park S. — Continued from page 13INB — The Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation report says 101 Rugby Road “is among the most romantic houses in Prospect Park South.” John E. Nitchie — an architect whose name is new to us — designed this house in 1900.
The house at 1305 Albemarle Road is one of the Prospect Park South Historic District's great sights. This is 131 Buckingham Road, whose nickname is the Japanese House. INBrooklyn photos by Lore Croghan
The Argyle and Albemarle Intersection
We didn’t pick out a preponderance of Petit’s designs on purpose for this list of dandy eye candy. We took photos in Prospect Park South first, then looked up historic-house info afterwards. It turns out that Petit designed another house we want you to see.

It’s at 1306 Albemarle Road, on the corner of Argyle Road. The Colonial Revival-style home has a curvy front porch topped by a turret that wears a witch’s hat. Right across the street, there’s another iconic house, 1305 Albemarle Road. The architect who designed it was H.B. Moore. It was built in 1905. It’s got grand, two-story pillars at the front door and porches on its first and second floors. An architect bought 1305 Albemarle Road for $2.75 million in 2017, Finance Department records show. He has done beautiful exterior restoration work on the house. “Reversal of Fortune” was filmed in this house. That’s the movie that stars Jeremy Irons as Claus von Bulow, who was tried for the attempted murder of his wife, Sunny von Bulow. Irons won an Oscar for this role.
You might get so wrapped up in the neighborhood’s northand-south-running streets that you forget to stroll along east-andwest-running Beverley Road on the edge of the historic district. Don’t make that mistake. You’ll miss intriguing-looking 1205 Beverley Road. It’s in the middle of the block between Argyle and Westminster roads. This house has a skinny tower rising up on one corner of it and porches stacked on top of one another on another corner. Developer George T. Moore hired architect Henry A. Stunek to design the house in 1899, the Prospect Park South Historic District’s designation report says.

Josephine Augello, President 5015 New Utrecht Ave. Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 20, 1927
ON FEB. 20, 1927, the Eagle reported, “Brooklyn residents will celebrate Washington’s birthday Tuesday, Feb. 22 by attending many functions here and in Manhattan. Dances, dinners, commemorative masses, motion pictures, speechmaking, special theatrical performances, a radio address by President [Calvin] Coolidge and the famous annual parade by Brooklyn’s old-time firemen will feature the day. Just so long as one vamp survives, the old Kings County Volunteer Firemen’s Association will continue to hold its annual Washington’s Birthday parade, says Boro President James J. Byrne in announcing plans for Tuesday’s event. Governor [Al] Smith will be in the reviewing stand at Boro Hall when the veteran fire fighters, thinner in ranks but dauntless in spirit, pass by at 11 o’clock. Later the governor will attend William H. Todd’s luncheon to the marchers at the Hotel Bossert. Since the volunteer firemen disbanded in 1869, they have paraded in Brooklyn on Washington’s birthday. Each year, those who view the parade miss a familiar face.”

Brooklyn Daily Eagle cover from Feb. 22, 1916
ON FEB. 22, 1861, the Eagle reported, “Philadelphia, Feb 22 — The celebration of Washington’s birthday began at daylight by salutes being fired off in different parts of the city … The ceremony of raising the flag of 34 stars over the Hall of Independence this morning, by Mr. Lincoln, was attended with all the solemnity due such an occasion, the scene being an impressive one. At the rising of the sun, crowds of people streamed from all parts of the city towards the State House, and very soon every inch of ground was occupied, a vast number of ladies being present. The weather was cool and bracing. At 7 o’clock, Mr. Lincoln was escorted to the Hall, and there received by [Rev.] Theodore Cuyler, who warmly welcomed him to its venerable walls in the hour of national peril and distress, when the great work achieved by the wisdom and patriotism of our fathers seemed threatened with instant ruin.” ON FEB 22, 1916, the Eagle reported, “The Colonial dance of the Entre Nous Club, held last night in the clubhouse, 489 Bedford Avenue, in celebration of Washington’s birthday, was one of the artistic and social successes of the season in the Eastern District. It was a costume dance, the young women appearing in gowns designed on the lines of the garb of Colonial belles. The decorations of the club were in harmony with the general scheme. The evening began with a reception, following which there was a promenade concert by a string orchestra. After the grand march, the dancing was begun and many of the younger set had their first taste of the cotillions and square dances of the old Revolutionary days. The effect was remarkable and was generally conceded to be one of the most strikingly original dances of the year.”

DOT: Alt BQE Plan Will Not Block Brooklyn Bridge View After All
“Our concept does not involve a temporary structure passing over the bridge,” Peter Bray, BHA’s executive director told the Brooklyn Heights Press. “The BHA's rendering in the article clearly
Continued from page 2
A Better Way’s rendering showed the unsightly overpass blocking such landmarks as 1 World Trade Center and the bridge’s western suspension tower. DOT muddied the waters by claiming that the alternate plan proposed by the Brooklyn Heights Association would also pass above the pedestrian path. The Brooklyn Heights Association demanded a retraction.
The city’s controversial plan for a temporary BrooklynQueens Expressway (BQE) bypass would cross over the pedestrian path on the Brooklyn Bridge, as this rendering for A Better Way NYC illustrates. Rendering courtesy of A Better Way NYC

points out that the overpass structure shown is ‘DOT's proposed exit ramp.’” He added, “Our concept merges the parallel bypass structure between Columbia Heights and the Brooklyn Bridge into the existing BQE to enable vehicles to pass under the bridge, not over it.” The designer of BHA’s alternate plan, Marc Wouters, confirms that BHA’s plan won’t mess with the views along the Brooklyn Bridge walkway. “Our plan keeps the roadway under the Brooklyn Bridge,” he told the Heights Press on Tuesday. The main problem, as most readers know by now, is that the city’s $3.4 billion BQE reconstruction plan would also construct a temporary six-lane highway on top of the landmarked Brooklyn Heights Promenade. DOT said that both their plan and BHA’s plan “can serve as a basis of the informed discussion that will take place as part of the environmental review process, in which we will review a range of concepts." _________________ See brooklyneagle.com for full coverage of the upcoming multi-year BQE reconstruction project.

Siah Armajani’s ‘Bridge Over Tree’ Opens in Brooklyn Bridge Park Historical Restaging Coincides With Met Breuer Exhibit By Scott Enman
seeing people as different and that they should be separated,” Baume said. “The idea of a bridge is about creating relationships, creating connections, allowing for interactions and connection. On a philosophical level it carries resonance as a beautiful experience.” The lone evergreen, Baume said, conveys the
speaks to the timelessness of Armanjani’s piece, planting it firmly within the constructs of 21st century — almost 50 years after its inception. Public Art Fund has a history of bringing vibrant contemporary art to New York City through its free exhibitions. The nonprofit has installed pieces that complement and play off the surrounding urban environment.
Brooklyn Heights Press
A tree grows in Brooklyn, and so too does a bridge. Iranian artist Siah Armajani's "Bridge Over Tree” is now on view at Brooklyn Bridge Park, marking the first time the installation has been staged since 1970. The piece, commissioned by the Public Art Fund, coincides with the artist’s first major U.S. retrospective, opening at the Met Breuer today and running through June 2. The sculpture is the sole outdoor component of the museum’s exhibition and will be on display through Sept. 29. The artwork features a 91-foot-long walkway with a set of stairs that rise and fall over a single evergreen tree. “Something Public Art Fund does a lot is commission artists to make new works, but we also have a strand in our program, which is more historical,” Nicholas Baume, director and chief curator of the organization, told the Brooklyn Heights Press. “There are occasions where we’re interested in contextualizing what is going on now with historical work,” he said. “Siah is still very much working today, but also has been a seminal figure in the development of public art.” “Bridge Over Tree” will not be the only historical overpass in the area — the artwork will be stand on the Empire Fulton Ferry Lawn between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges with the East River and Manhattan skyline in the background. “This nearly 50-year-old work is so fresh, so interesting, so before its time,” Baume said. “Just the poetry of this image of a bridge that goes nowhere, that has no function in a normal sense, but which is straddling a tree right in the middle of a lawn in between these two great bridges. It’s a very resonant and poetic image.”

Iranian artist Siah Armajani's "Bridge Over Tree” is now on view at Brooklyn Bridge Park, marking the ﬁrst time the installation has been staged since 1970. Photo by Timothy Schenck “There are not many places in New York City where you can put a 90-foot-long sculpture,” he added. “The work looks amazing here; it’s really fortuitous. It’s almost as if it could have been conceived for this location.” The versatile piece, which debuted in 1970 in Minnesota — where Armajani, 79, currently lives — is particularly pertinent in the modern era, Baume said, given the current political climate and rhetoric surrounding walls and borders. “We’re having such a debate nationally, internationally about dividing people, about people belonging in one place and not the other, about
feeling of being alone — even when seemingly connected to the collective. “There’s that sense of the irreducible nature of the individual, and the tree in some sense represents that, but also that idea of the individual being in dialogue, the idea of connection and of things coming together,” he said. “There’s an interesting blend of the singular and the collective in this meeting of the solitary tree and the bridge that we’re invited to experience and walk through.” In an era of social media and constant communication, Baume’s interpretation of the tree
The group has commissioned several prominent pieces in Brooklyn Bridge Park, including Erwin Wurm’s “Hot Dog Bus,” which debuted last June. Wurm’s installation featured a vintage Volkswagen Microbus that had been transformed into a bloated and bizarre-looking hot dog stand. In May 2017, the organization brought Anish Kapoor’s “Descension,” a 26-foot-wide whirlpool, to Pier 1. A year earlier the group installed Martin Creed’s “Understanding,” a 25foot-tall, rotating neon sculpture at Pier 6. Visit brooklyneagle.com for full story
