The Neighborhood Show
Daydream: Shakespeare in the Playground
A crew of volunteers of all ages worked hard to prime the walls in preparation for the artists. Many more neighbors participated by decorating hundreds of tiles for the mosaics on the panels on Flatbush Ave. Visitors to our area and neighbors returning home no longer confront an eyesore— they are now greeted by vibrant, colorful murals that celebrate our community.
Greening the Bridge
When folks exit the Prospect Park subway station they see these four planters growing and weaving vines throughout the fence, expressing a more and more complicated shape. The daily dog walkers from the local neighborhood pass on the way to and from the park, consciously or unconsciously noting the growth and change over time. We have seen bees flying around the purple flowers. The passion flower vines grasp the fence with amazing strength—the vines look like copper wire. The planters seem to have created a bit of a different space on the bridge. It almost seems like people stop and linger a bit longer. The plants garner continuous compliments and appreciation, yet are dependent upon care from the neighborhood residents. Several residents have offered to help water. In a certain light, the plants become a sculptural expression of care and neighborhood improvement.
