On August 25th, Adorn Me, a piece created by UNIQLO Park Expressions Grant recipient Tanda Francis, was unveiled in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Park. Francis explores African presence in public space as a powerful force of beauty and cultural relevance, drawing on African sculptural tradition and portraiture, as well as Victorian and colonial ornamentation. She seeks to provide “a healing message during a time of heated debate over monuments erected as symbols of oppression and control” in this installation, which will be on view until next summer.
