Colleen Flanigan and Judith Pleva: NYC Oyster Project

Inspired by Brooklyn’s native oyster reefs, NYC Oyster Project will feature color photographs of Colleen Flanigan’s underwater sculptures and an installation of Judith Pleva’s unbound multimedia scrapbook. Flanigan and Pleva’s work illuminates the beauty of marine life as well as the relationships between organisms in New York City’s waterways. This immersive installation examines the kindred associations between organisms and their environment and sheds light on the benevolent influence of public parks and nature reserves on the human psyche. NYC Oyster Project celebrates the improvement to the New York Harbor’s human environment provided by the construction of Brooklyn Bridge Park.
