This exhibition will present both key and lesser-known figures who worked in the Public Access arena, as well as contemporary artists experimenting with the democratic potential of new media platforms, such as YouTube, on the Internet. BRIC’s own Brooklyn Free Speech Public Access…See More

How often are you the first among your friends to try something new?
All the time
What do you want people to know most about you?
BRIC's contemporary art initiatives aim to increase the visibility and accessibility of contemporary art while bridging the gap between the art world and global culture in Brooklyn through exhibitions, public events, and an innovative arts education program at BRIC House and around the borough.
BRIC Rotunda Gallery is the contemporary art space of BRIC Arts | Media | Bklyn.
The Tower of the Empire State Building bisects the Arch in Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza.
Landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted and architect Calvert Vaux created the framework for this continuing work-in-progress as the Civil War ended, 25 years before the Arch, 65 years before the Tower, 105 years before the Mirador, and 145 years before I stumbled across it.
In starting the “Grand Army Plaza” group here at Brooklyn Arts Project, I hope to share ideas on how to raise public awareness to protect and promote this View as an “historic visual corridor.” Building Six of Atlantic Yards threatens to eclipse the view.
Please forward the links to friends, artists, architects, bloggers, politicos, media and civilians.
