Exhibition Tuesday!

Artist Shinique Smith created Mother Hale’s Garden, a permanent laminated glass and mosaic  artwork on the facade of the new Mother Clara Hale Bus Depot located between 146th and 147th  Street in Central Harlem. Smith’s exuberant brush strokes and vibrant collage  were translated into glass and ceramic mosaic that spans the building’s exterior. This past weekend, Smith’s solo exhibition Bright Matter opened at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston features 30 of her key works from this past decade with more than a dozen new pieces, on view until March, 2015.

We’re betting this is the first time kids have made construction fencing for a DDC plaza project. The fencing is as great as the new Astor Place and Cooper Square Plaza will be. Kids enjoying the street fairs (part of DOT’s Summer Streets) were invited to paint images that are hung to form temporary construction site wrap panels. While the kids paint, the parents have the opportunity to speak with our project Community Construction Liaison about what to expect throughout the project’s construction and about some of the project’s innovations, such as how the plaza will reclaim water.

There's a Remarkably Strong Link Between Community Service and Happiness

The interactive installation BruumRuum! by David Torrents and artec3 Studio lets people interact with public space in Barcelona emitting noises and sounds and, as a result, produces colorful lightning changes.
