No Bills: Stories of North Brooklyn

$2,000

On Sunday, July 24, the North Brooklyn Public Art Coalition (nbART) presents No Bills: Stories of North Brooklyn, a sound installation by Brooklyn-based artist Nick Yulman. The project features dozens of oral histories of North Brooklyn residents, business owners, and community leaders that will be streamed from “listening stations” installed at sites across Williamsburg and Greenpoint through September 2011. On July 24th at 1:30 PM and 2:30 PM, Yulman will host tours of the sites that begins at McCarren Park Pool (Lorimer & Bayard Streets); a reception will follow.

From July through September, visitors can experience No Bills at the following locations:

McCarren Park Pool (Lorimer & Bayard): Opened by city planner Robert Moses in 1936, the pool closed in 1984 and sat unused until summer 2005, when the empty basin opened as a popular event venue. Construction began in December 2009 to transform the site into a year-round recreation center.

● Triangle Court (Borinquen Place at Keap and Grand): This former theater became a “contaminated triangle of dirt” when it was converted into a gas station site. It is now the pilot site for a new city clean-up and development program called Brownfield Cleanup.

● Ventana244 Art Space (244 North 6th): This gallery presents experimental artwork of all disciplines, and specializes in art made in Williamsburg during the 1980s.view, and is especially interested in art made in Williamsburg during the 80’s.

Through this Kickstarter Campaign, and with YOUR HELP we are looking to expand No Bills to additional sites, and to increase the number of stories we can present to the Greenpoint and Williamsburg communities.

Thank you, as always, for your ongoing support.
