On our way to the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Mark and I lingered in Dumbo to sketch a few sights:
This is the little lighthouse that used to guide ships on the East River.
Here is a wide panorama of upper New York Bay- the Bayonne Bridge to the left, Lady Liberty, and the Marine Terminal on the tip of Manhattan to the right.
At the Navy Yard we were directed to a non-descript warehouse on premises where a big crowd was using colored pencils to draw designs on big pieces of cardboard. They were then shaped by a jigsaw behind the yellow curtain at left.
Participants assembled their now shaped cardboard into interesting shapes on a platform made up of mini-sawhorses.
Here are sketches of the various participants.
A camera was suspended overhead to document over time the assembly of the artwork. An interesting way to spend a beautiful summer day in Brooklyn. Jim W.
