How often are you the first among your friends to try something new?
What do you want people to know most about you?
I am an artist, working primarily in acrylics, although I've painted a lot in oil. Although I greatly prefer oils, I don't want my family's health to be compromised. I also draw, using pencil and charcoal--nothing fancy about me. I studied animation several years ago at SVA, employing the stop-motion animation technique. I have, on occasion, animated some of my paintings, which has been a rather daunting experience. I am an older woman, living in Brooklyn, New York, where I was born and with whom (I use that pronoun intentionally) I have a love/hate relationship. I also own a house in Woodstock, NY, where I spend time.
Have you seen Brooklyn’s grandest example of Public Artwork? It was built on a framework designed by our fellow artists, Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. They felt that social reform could be achieved through art. Nobody is aware it exists. Development may eclipse it.
Protecting and promoting this work-in-progress, begun before the Civil War ended, is now up to today’s artists. We can raise public awareness and save this massive and unknown Public Artwork. If you can, forward the links to artists, politicos, media and civilians – Thanks - Richard
