Come to an opening reception to celebrate the installation of a site-specific photographic mural by Hugh Crawford for the Grand Lobby of the Brooklyn Public Library. The piece addresses issues of transition and change both at Brooklyn Public Library and the borough of Brooklyn. It combines items from BPL’s collections, ephemera, and other momentos from the library’s past with the library’s latest technological offerings.
“I’ve been working on a big project for the last few months about memory, books, libraries, Coney Island, Brooklyn , severe weather, the old and the new, the old future, the new future, Apollo, and Laocoön,” writes Hugh Crawford in an email. “It even has a tiny bit of overlap with some ideas I’m working on with the Jamie Livingston project.”
