Spencer Finch’s new public art project has 4,000 trees recreating part of a California redwood forest in Downtown Brooklyn.
The arts and technology nonprofit Eyebeam recently cancelled its 2016 plans for a major space in the BAM Cultural District of Downtown Brooklyn, Hyperallergic has learned.
This morning on my way to work, I walked a few blocks through Downtown Brooklyn. On the surface, it looked the same as it always had — bustling and gritty — but I saw it differently. I noticed the vacant storefronts, the newly arrived chain stores, the towering, high-rise condos a few blocks away, and the fancy supermarket just across from the Hoyt-Schermerhorn station. These are things I had never given much thought to until today, and the reason my vision shifted is a film I saw last night: Kelly Anderson’s fantastic documentary My Brooklyn.
