Barry McGee Mural, 3 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217
In a collaboration with Vanity Fair, Cadillac, the Mark Morris Dance Group and Brooklyn Academy of Music, the ginormous 96 x 67 foot Barry McGee painting (called Untitled 2012) was installed in Downtown Brooklyn earlier this fall. The mural, which is on the side of the Mark Morris Dance Company, has turned Downtown Brooklyn into a faux-gallery, looking just like a giant version of his signature cluster paintings.
