In celebration of HEDERA at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival this summer, a special reception with the artist will take place on Saturday, JUNE23 at 6PM, preceeding the Fischerspooner/Xeno & Oaklander show. Head to the Bandshell early, and enjoy:
+ A brief discussion with artist Grimanesa Amorós, led by Elizabeth Ferrer, Vice President of Contemporary Art at BRIC.
+ An audience Q&A.
+ Toast with the artist (a cash bar will be available during the event).
+ Music by artist and DJ Juliana Huxtable.
HEDERA will be on view from June 5 through August 11, and many thousands of visitors from Brooklyn and beyond will be able to interact with the sculpture. Measuring some 40 ft x 40 ft x 24 ft., the work is inspired by the form of the Bandshell and the natural beauty and grandeur of the surrounding park's landscape.
