The Brooklyn Waterfront Research Center held an event at Borough Hall called Spaces & Places: Art Along the Brooklyn Waterfront. The above design was created by Matthew Joseph, my colleague at Faculty Commons.
Out of all the speakers, Lisa Kim’s positive attitude, energy, and passion inspired me the most. She has a great point when she mentioned that individuals and businesses should be about partnership, not just one-way hand-outs. Some non-profit organizations would come and ask for resources and other types of aid, but has nothing to offer back.
The above photo shows Barry Rosenthal speaking about his “Found in Nature” project, where he collects “garbage,” paint them all in one color, and photograph them in a collection.
Another amazing discovery is Underwater New York, an online blog about stories, art and music inspired by the waters and objects found along shores of NY. I was able to catch Nicole Haroutunian, an editor of the blog, and she was kind enough to give me some posters of artwork on water! 🙂
