Art + Culture
Rush Arts Philanthropic Foundation: By My Window Have I For Scenery
Brooklyn Bridge Park is thrilled to welcome back the young artists of Rush Arts Summer Session. This year’s installation draws from the works of Rush Director of Education, Meridith McNeal. McNeal’s paintings depict vibrant land and cityscapes viewed through diversely styled, open or closed windows, which invite the viewer to consider not just what lies outside them, but within them as well. After viewing McNeal’s exhibitions in Brooklyn galleries and visiting BBP’s Empire Fulton Ferry section, the students designed their original paintings based on photographic references of the park. The paintings, collectively titled By My Window Have I For Scenery, make the latest entry in the program of rotating art installations at 99 Plymouth. Rush Education Programs provide inner-city youth with contemporary art education.
The exhibition runs until August 21.
