Casey Opstad: Watergate
Brooklyn artist Casey Opstad's massive 275sf painting covering the corrugated metal fence in the Archway under the Manhattan Bridge. The pixelated design is a nod to the digital designers of DUMBO and the wave-like motif transports onlookers straight to the Brooklyn waterfront, as if it is just beyond the gate. The piece was painted in July of 2013.
Watergate was commissioned by the DUMBO Improvement District and presented in partnership with the NYC Department of Transportation’s Art Program.
