Come join us in celebrating the grand opening of Courtney McCloskey’s mosaic, Pieces of Poetry. The mosaic, which will be installed in the plinth on the monument plaza, celebrates three great poets from Fort Greene: Walt Whitman, Marianne Moore, and Richard Wright.
The mosaic is made of recycled glass and ceramic and students from various neighborhood schools contributed to the piece throughout the winter.
Thanks to Peck’s on Myrtle for providing light refreshments!
Thank you to NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, the Buckhorn Foundations, Humanities New York, UrbanGlass, and GasWorks NYC for their support of the project.
