This Just In…

September 12, 2003

The Brooklyn Museum of Art recently commissioned artist Alexis Rockman (BFA 1985 Fine Arts) to create a mural celebrating its new Eastern Parkway entrance and plaza opening in April 2004. The 8′ x 24′ mural, Manifest Destiny, will portray an apocalyptic vision of Brooklyn in which much of the borough is submerged under water as a result of global warming. It will be on view in the second floor Mezzanine Gallery overlooking the renovated Grand Lobby and new glass entrance pavilion, from April 16 through September 12, 2004. Manifest Destiny will then travel on an 18-month tour to other venues.
