About this Blog

BrooklynBornThis blog started in my head when I listened in the 90's to friends who feared Brooklyn and newcomers who blogged about BK as if it barely existed before they arrived. Brooklyn as Tabula Rasa. My blog satisfies my need to hear and air feelings of B'klyn from the people whose life experience was born here. Also I hope to provide balance to some of the revisionist historical musings I've seen how Brooklyn and her residents used to be, we're still here. If we can all live as best possible while appreciating the past and neighbors we've inherited that would be great too.

Photo Wednesday 030613 - The Patience of El Anatsui (at the Brooklyn Museum)

Work of El Anatsui

I want to share this with you. Above are a few of the several wonderful, intricate, transformational works of artist El Anatsui of Ghana now on display
at the Brooklyn Museum - make your eyes and mind happy, check them out before they're gone. 

I won't tell you about the details of the work, they're better seen and experienced in person.

El Anatsui has been creating works of various types, materials and messages for decades, it took a while for the world to catch on to him and I'm glad he persevered and continues to create.

At Brooklyn Museum now thru August 4, 2013.
