I am a huge fan of public artworks. I think they are an essential piece of the texture of a city, and I’m so lucky to live in Minneapolis where you can throw a rock and hit three murals. This link should take you to an album of public art I have on Facebook. I love adding to this album, and how it helps me see art everywhere I go.
Today, I give you Tom Fruin, who made this phenomenal piece of public artwork in Brooklyn.
I love how this piece changes the whole landscape it appears in. Just imagine if it was a plain white concrete water tower, and how much beauty would be lost. If I ever make it back to New York City, I’m going to make sure I get to stand on the Brooklyn Bridge and see this piece for myself.
