2. Katie Merz ‘Brooklyn Glyphs’ at 80 Flatbush


We’ve been keeping up with Katie Merz @Muralat80flatbush for some time now. Thanks to an Instagram post, we now know that the first of the two adjoining buildings has been completed.

Commissioned by Alloy Development, Merz has been working with the community to “compile a rich and diverse dossier of gathered stories and information,” which will spread across the surface of the buildings, from the sidewalk to the top floor, in the form of Merz’s signature black and white hieroglyphs. The community has been having a lot of fun with this project, as evidenced on Instagram. Stop by and say “Hi,” or follow the 80 Flatbush Mural, The Brooklyn Glyphs, on Instagram. If you have a Brooklyn story to share, post it with the hashtage #mystory80, and follow the artist at Katie Merz.
