Coming To Brooklyn

BROOKLYN . . . . the name itself summons up an array of responses that can range from the prosaic to the whimsical: some in image, some in words; some in memories and associations of family and of history; or of architecture and neighborhoods, artists, galleries and restaurants; or of ethnicity, cobblestone streets and trolleys; of a time long past and a vibrant present; of sweeping waterfront views and of, course, bridges, harbors, skylines and baseball. Brooklyn means something to everybody.

Coming to Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition's annual fall exhibit, captures these sentiments and houses them in a near-perfect venue, a Civil War-era warehouse along Red Hook's cobblestone streets overlooking New York harbor. There is no better place to contemplate what Coming to Brooklyn means.

This year over 200 artists will express through painting, sculpture, photography, installation and assemblage what this experience of arrival has meant to them. In addition to a visual exploration, each artist is asked to write a narrative, a contemplation of process, emotion, or intent a window into each artist's thoughts of the meaning of this theme.
