Hello Nalani,

My interest in writing you today is to share Brooklyn’s greatest architectural public artwork.

Why it is unknown is a mystery.  But it is threatened.  And 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.  Development threatens to eclipse the view. 

Please forward the links to friends, artists, architects, bloggers, politicos, media and civilians. 

Your friend, Richard

Anatomical kaleidoscopy

Immagini tratte da uno studio di parti anatomiche, elaborate in maniera caleidoscopica. Risultato: non particolarmente esaltante...pur nella sua originalità.
