Closing Bell: New Art for Fort Greene Park Plaza


A public art installation is coming to the plaza outside Fort Greene Park at Myrtle and Washington Park. The Parks Department teamed up with the Myrtle Avenue Broooklyn Partnership and Brooklyn-based artist Ruth McKerrell for the project. McKerrell, who works primarily with styrofoam, will cast three styrofoam goats into aluminum, which will be placed on concrete plinths in the plaza. The installation should be in place by the end of this month, and the piece will remain until June of next year. The artist is the first recipient of the Clare Weiss Emerging Artist Award, which provided funding. Click through to get an idea of what the goats will look like.
