10.  Jose Parla “Diary of Brooklyn” at Barclays Center

Barclays Center stadium in Downtown Brooklyn may have been the cause of controversy for locals, but the center is also home to its very own site-specific Jose Parla mural. Sprawling across the entire Dean Street entrance, the piece incorporates a loose calligraphy that pays homage to Brooklyn’s history, and can be seen in its full splendor from the outside. It will soon be joined by pieces by Mickalene Thomas and others to be announced.
