News June 15, 2015

Throughout the summer and into the fall, we will be distributing postcards at various bookstores, performance venues, and cultural institutions around Brooklyn asking people to document a public space in the borough on a 4" x 6" canvas. Here is what we've received so far. Click on the black pins of the map to see thumbnails of the postcards, and scroll down to see the enlarged versions. If you're interested in creating your own, pick up a card at one of the participating locations.
