About this project

May 24th, 2013, marks the 130th anniversary of the Brooklyn Bridge

In an artsy way, this project wishes to celebrate the era of such an important piece of architecture.  

The “Brooklyn Bridge 130th Art-iversary” event, has been created to show 130 views of the Brooklyn Bridge and how people of this city and the many who come, just to view its splendor play such an important role in the life of this New York City and World landmark.

“This monumental event will exhibit how people from all over the world will interact with this one of a kind, public art-performance.”

Designed by John Augusto Roebling, there has never been this combined talent and such expertise in excavation, suspension and architectural aesthetics in one of the busiest metropolis in the world. It is the very first important connection for Brooklyn to be connected to Manhattan allowing the City of New York to be transformed forever.

Today, New Yorkers and tourists in all shape, form or fashion cross the Brooklyn Bridge daily, by car, bicycle, or foot to contemplate this world’s eighth wonder. 

  For this anniversary it is estimated thousands of people during the week end of the anniversary.

Almost 100% of the people that have chosen to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge also are no doubt without a camera or a device to capture images of that ecstatic moment.

BB130A allows YOU to stargaze through the designs of the “white-body-frames”.

The Brooklyn Bridge 130th Arti-versary project is created to show 130 views of the Brooklyn Bridge and how the people of this city and all those who come just to view its splendor, can interact with this acclaimed city landmark.

"I love Brooklyn Bridge" from Brooklyn side
"I love Brooklyn Bridge" from Brooklyn side

My vision is to show 130 incomparable compositional views of the Brooklyn Bridge and its surroundings. I would like to share my perspective of this vision, through a series of custom frames, each one with an original insert, which create the fantasy scenario. These frames will be held by 130 different people on and around the Brooklyn Bridge.

More original art work is in the making. We have decided to leave them out in order to create some excitement and suspense.  

All pledged money is soley for the construction of the 130 frames that will be on display the day of the event. It will also be used to purchase the white jump suits for the "white-body-frames", as well as compensating the people holding the frames. The biggest portion will go to the finalization of the web site and the completion of the coffee table book which is being complied for the future promotion and marketing for future project. no of this is possible without your support!!

YOUR HELP is needed to make it HAPPEN ! 

Risks and challenges

The only real risk is the weather and that is the reason why we give the opportunity to a second day.
We at SAAW LLC are a group of talented individuals each one with a deep knowledge of that own sector, from the design to the oversee passing by the production.
Fortunatly during the first step of the creation of this project a small group of capable interns are been part of the team giving that helpfull resource.
