Brooklyn Arts Council and Brooklyn Bridge Park Present NYC Oyster Project
An immersive installation by artists Colleen Flanigan and Judith Pleva connects human development to the ecosystems of Brooklyn’s native oyster reefs.
From June 2 to June 30, 2016, NYC Oyster Project and Brooklyn Arts Council will partner with Brooklyn Bridge Park to present an exhibition that will prompt the audience to consider Brooklyn’s waterfront in new ways. The show’s opening will take place on Thursday, June 2, 2016, from 5 PM – 7PM at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Community Room at 99 Plymouth Street in Brooklyn.
Funding for this project is provided, in part, by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the New York City Council and Council Member Stephen Levin.
A talk with the artists and curator will be held on Saturday, June 25, 2016 at 1 PM at the Brooklyn Bridge Park Community Room at 99 Plymouth Street in Brooklyn. The talk is free and open to the public. Seating is limited.
