The accompanying monograph, with essays by Susan Minot and Anne Tucker, is a beautiful book of photography that questions what it means…See More

In Valley of Shadows and Dreams he digs deep into the harsh truths of farm workers’ daily experience in California’s Central Valley, revealing a deep sense of anger and betrayal toward the destructive legacies of politics, bureaucracy, and control.Light shows us once-viable farmland transformed into neighborhoods full of empty tract homes that no workers can…See More

By allowing volunteer inmates to comfort fellow inmates who are elderly or terminally ill, a new hospice program helps convicts assert and affirm their humanity in an environment designed to isolate and punish.  Award-winning…See More

As a Brooklyn artist, I write you today to share Brooklyn’s greatest public artwork.

Why it is unknown is a mystery.  Nobody knows it exists.

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. 

Your friend, Richard
