Julia Vogl, Leaves of Fort Greene
May 23, 2009 to July 9, 2009
Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn
Please note: This is a past exhibit that is no longer installed in the park.
Leaves of Fort Greene relies on the movement of sunlight. In this work, people can walk between large panels of Plexiglas to catch the light streaming through painted images of enlarged foliage. The images painted on the Plexiglas mimic the diversity of the park's foliage and symbolically represent the diverse population of the Fort Greene community. Come picnic and play near this project and encounter the ever-changing combinations of pattern, color, and light!
