WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

– Brooklyn Heights Blog
“Connecting the past with the present is really at the heart of our mission here. This is definitely the most ambitious Public Perspectives exhibit we’ve ever had.”
– Janice Monger, Manager, Public Perspectives program, Brooklyn Historical Society
“[Our education programs] about people’s relationship to their landscape, to sustainability, to an ideal community, all relate to…Brooklyn Utopias. We were thrilled with the results of the installation.”

– Kim Maier, Executive Director, The Old Stone House

“The exhibition theme has challenged and inspired me to create new site-specific work that brings together both personal and political themes. The new work feels like a milestone in my artistic development, as well as the start of a fruitful path for future exploration.”
– Eduardo Alexander Rabel, participating artist
“Participating in ‘Brooklyn Utopias?’ gave me an opportunity to discover a part of Brooklyn’s history and communicate that history with the community. As a reflection on and reflection of Brooklyn, BU provided perspectives through which community members can understand their environment.”
– Eric Corriel, participating artist
“It broadened my knowledge of other artists within my community tackling related or intersecting topics.”
– Julia Whitney Barnes, participating artist
“Having a forum for people to come together and discuss ways for change in this community through the use of art is ideal to me.”
– Katie Hall, participating artist
“‘Brooklyn Utopias?’ provided me with logistical support, venue, and modest funding to pursue a site-specific public project I’d been looking for an opportunity to do.”
– Bryony Romer, participating artist
“The primary impact of ‘Brooklyn Utopias?’ on me is a different overall perspective on Brooklyn. It has forced me to stop, on many occasions and in many neighborhoods, and try to put myself in the shoes of my fellow Brooklynites.”
– Jeremy Reed, co-exhibition designer
“I never realized I had what it takes to be part of a professional exhibit. Now I have even more confidence in myself as an artist.”
– Malissa Williams, age 16, participating teen artist, Old Stone House and Starting Artists
”This project was a highlight of my summer at Starting Artists. I learned a lot about issues I care about in Brooklyn, and how to express my opinions about my community through art.”
– Mark Gonsalvez, age 18, participating teen artist, Brooklyn Historical Society and Starting Artists
“The public program was a great networking event for me: I got to meet some really passionate artists. On a more personal note: it allowed me to come back to what I love: imagining the future. It’s important to remember why we are doing our day-to-day activities: in response to some utopian vision.”
– Stacey Murphy, Founder, BK Farmyards, guest presenter, “Do it Yourself Utopias” public program at the Old Stone House
“I was honored to be included with such an illustrious group of Utopians. I hope that we will all continue to dialog about planning for Brooklyn’s future both in concept and concrete action.“
– Derek Denckla, Founder and President, Propeller Group, guest panelist, “Utopian” Urban Planning public program at Brooklyn Historical Society
