Jason Krugman’s Living Objects Press Release

JASON  KRUGMAN’S  LIVING OBJECTS—

MAJOR  PUBLIC  ART  INSTALLATION  IN  McCARREN  PARK

North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition (NbPac) is pleased to present Living Objects, a site-specific installation in McCarren Park, opening Sunday, November 22.

McCarren Park is the largest park in North Brooklyn, serving the entire region, drawing thousands of visitors each month. NbPac in collaboration with Open Space Alliance for North Brooklyn (OSA), the area’s premiere parks development and improvement nonprofit, is bringing the largest public art installation in McCarren Park’s recent history to our local communities.

Living Objects will feature three LED-lit sculptures on the roof of the Parks and Recreation Facilities building in the Northwestern area of the park. The illuminated figures will be perched on top of the building, greeting visitors and creating a captivating spectacle against the Brooklyn night sky.

Living Objects will build upon a long-standing tradition of temporary art installations in New York City parks, enhancing McCarren Park and making art accessible to all in North Brooklyn.  The sculptures will engage the park’s regular users by evoking a sense of wonder and curiosity, creating a beacon of light attracting visitors and passers-by.  NbPac and OSA are proud to revitalize our public spaces and further establish McCarren Park and North Brooklyn as destinations for arts and culture.

Please join us for a fundraiser for the project on Wednesday, November 11th at Berry Park (4 Berry St. between Nassau Ave. and N. 14th Street) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Also, please save the date for an opening celebration on November 22nd.
