Growing up in Brooklyn I've always been fascinated by the Navy Yard. It was founded in 1801 by John Adams. It’s huge and covers over 300 acres including 40 historic structures and 3 city landmarks.This should be a fascinating location with fantastic views of lower Manhattan
SITU Studio honors the legacy of visionary architect Lebbeus Woods (1940–2012) with an all-day public-participatory DrawNow! drawing workshop on Saturday, June 7, at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The workshop invites participants to produce a collective artwork on a shared, semi-rigid, drawing surface that will transform into a landscape throughout the course of the day. All supplies will be provided and no experience is necessary!
