Give an Artist Their Shot on the Great Wall of Brooklyn


Behold the Great Wall of Brooklyn — an independent artist-run public art organization in Fort Greene that introduces a new piece of large-scale art made in Brooklyn (at the corner of Myrtle and Vanderbilt Avenues to be exact) to the community each quarter. According to their website:

The mission of this project is to enhance Fort Greene’s commercial district with an ongoing and enlivening dialogue between artists, local audiences and public spaces. Addressing the aspirations, social challenges and diversity of Fort Greene, the Great Wall of Brooklyn aims to promote and inspire unexpected encounters in the community where many artists create and develop their work.

Charlotta Janssen, the creative mind behind the endeavor and the co-owner of Chez Lola, dropped by Flavorpill HQ earlier today to tell us about her org’s latest endeavor: a vote to determine which of three artistic works graces the Great Wall next. After the jump check out images of the proposed projects and a video which features interviews with all of the artists: Allistar D. Peters, Lucia Jeesun Lee, Hidemi Takagi, and Alev Ozkaynak. Votes can be cast at Chez Lola until Friday.
