Park of Dreams: An Inside Look

June 1 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Learn more about Park of Dreams, the public art installation currently on view in Grand Army Plaza.

Join Prospect Park Alliance President Morgan Monaco, ART FOR CHANGE Founder Jeanne Masel, and Assemblymember Brian Cunningham to learn more about Park of Dreams, the public art installation currently on view in Grand Army Plaza. Hear from the featured artists Jon Key, Amy Lincoln, Na’ye Perez, and Maria Calandra to learn more about their inspiration behind the artwork and celebrate Brooklyn’s Backyard through an inside look at this public art exhibition. The project is installed on the construction fencing of the iconic Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Memorial Arch, which is currently being restored along with the Plaza and Berms by Prospect Park Alliance through $8.9M in Mayoral funding. 

Park Of Dreams was made possible in part through a $25,000 grant from Assembly Member Brian Cunningham, with additional funding from Council Member Crystal Hudson and ART FOR CHANGE. The project was undertaken through the City Canvas initiative of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs and in partnership with NYC Parks.

Park Of Dreams is a curated presentation of contemporary artworks by Marcus Brutus, Kelly Beeman, Alyssa Klauer, Danielle Orchard, Cydne Coleby, Jules De Balincourt, Amy Lincoln, Bianca Nemelc, Maria Calandra, Jon Key, Kirsten Deirup, and Na’ye Perez, which celebrates Brooklyn’s beloved Prospect Park.

Please note that the event will be on the North side of the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Arch. View location details.
