Sinks, sticks, steel and suitcases formed
into provocative sculptures have invaded two DUMBO parks as part
of the 24th annual Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition’s (BWAC)
"Garden of Delights."
The unique outdoor sculpture show can be seen at the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park and the park at the foot of Main Street until Oct. 13.
This year’s sculptures include artist and BWAC curator Ursula Clark’s "Stick Dome" (pictured) and its name has nothing to hide: the sculpture is a tall, round sculpture formed from sticks.
Sculptor Tyrome Tripoli’s "Travel With the Kitchen Sink," which contains stainless-steel sinks fastened together and flowing from an open suitcase, is also featured, along with Matt Johnson’s take on two of the seven deadly sins, steel men representing "Gluttony" and "Greed."
Stephanie Bloom’s "Before and After" is an eight-foot-high aluminum house decorated with painted leaves and squirrels, making a statement about her concern for the environment in replacing nature with development.
The exhibit incorporates these and other sculptures from the minds - and hands - of 29 artists.
See the "Garden of Delights" at the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park (Water Street at New Dock Street) and the park at the foot of Main Street in DUMBO every day, from 8:30 am to sunset. The exhibit closes on Oct. 13. For more information, visit www.bwac.org or call (718) 596-2507.
