New Public Artwork Installed on Lincoln Road Bridge
On our way to the Prospect Park Halloween Walk on Saturday, we happened upon the installation of a public art work on the Lincoln Road Bridge. Brooklyn artist Crystal Gregory was busy stitching gorgeous, handmade crochet pieces to the wire metal fencing.
The piece, called Foot Traffic, was made possible through a grant from the Department of Transportation, which also funded Specter's mural on Parkside Avenue. Foot Traffic will be up for a year, or until the elements (human or otherwise) take over.
An official opening for Foot Traffic will be held this Thursday, November 4, at 6 pm on the bridge, followed by a reception at K-Dog. Come on down!
And if you'd like to see more of Ms. Gregory's work, including an earlier public art installation at PS. 122, do check out her website.
