About the project:

For the second annual Art in the Anchorage, thirteen painting installations and ten performances addressed the dramatic historical and visual qualities of the Brooklyn Bridge Anchorage. Artist installations included entrance signage by graffiti artist CRASH; five-minute duets and solos by Susan Marshall and Company; and pyrotechnics, which effectively converted industrial refuse into sculptural instruments and sounds by Bow Gamelan.
