About the project:

Brooklyn Utopias: In TRANSITion, in partnership with the Old Stone House and the NYC Department of Transportation’s Urban Art Program (DOT), is pleased to present a temporary public art installation on 4th Avenue by Emily Weiskopf.   In New York City, we often walk, ride, drive, or bike side-by-side unconsciously leading parallel lives. By raising the yellow lines that separate Fourth Avenue’s traffic lanes, Unparallel Way questions and heightens awareness of these paths we all follow, suggesting alternatives in a playful perspective. By encouraging going with the flow and contemplating our surroundings, the sculpture also symbolizes efforts to calm Fourth Avenue traffic.

Official unveiling ceremony and press conference: Monday, October 28, 11am at the traffic median.
