15. Drift Under the Archway in DUMBO
The DUMBO Archway will receive a unique installation on December 1st entitled Drift, by DUMBO-based artist Leonard Ursachi, who you might remember from his installation Fatboy in Prospect Park. The artist believes that each of the seven pieces that make up this installation started life as one large tree on the banks of the East River. The seven-piece installation is made up of cement casts, with a platform made from the original old pier that use to be at the end of the Anchorage. Drift was created in Ursachi’s 700 square foot studio, just blocks away on Plymouth Street. Opening Reception for Drift will be held on December 1st from 6-7 pm. Drift will be on view in the 7,000 square foot DUMBO Archway, under the Manhattan Bridge, through March, 2017.
