Intersection: Heidy Garay, Mikell Fine Isles and Sam Vernon
The second mural commissioned for Front Street, Intersection was installed in Dumbo in June 2011. This piece, by artists Heidy Garay, Mikell Fine Isles and Sam Vernon, showed lines of seven colors meeting the corrugated vertical lines of the fence behind it. The concept mimicked and bent the lines of the fence, creating a colorful graphic symbolizing the constant movement of DUMBO. The design was an abstracted interpretation of intersecting train tracks and the familiar New York City subway map and also referenced the cross-sections of cultures and people who view it.
Commissioned by the Dumbo Improvement District in partnership with NYCDOT.
