Art Fund project for Metro Tech Center, Brooklyn, NY
Installed for one year.

Installed at MetroTech Center in downtown Brooklyn. Two quotes are appropriated; one is from an advertising brochure about MetroTech and reads “Leaders of the new century today”. The other is from Frederick Law Olmsteds’ notes about Fort Green Park and is about the placement of the Martyrs Monument, it reads, “For refreshing purity of air and beauty of prospect, the central part of the square is beyond question to be preferred”. The Public Art Fund and MetroTech Center sponsored this project.
