How often are you the first among your friends to try something new?
What do you want people to know most about you?
Under Minerva is an art gallery and event space. The Artists' Den, beneath the gallery, is a 24 hour art studio space that provides it's members with daily work and show space. The gallery hosts guest curators who bring in artists for 6-week exhibits that accompany the works from the Den. Current programming includes Anusara Yoga classes, Tao Mediation, and art/performance programs titled Thousand Works Series and Gallery Hijack.
This Spring and Summer invites children's creativity class (CTC), Tai Chi, Parent/Child Storytime Yoga, and Minerva's Book Club and Writing Club.
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. Development threatens to eclipse the view.
