23. Tom Fruin’s Glass House

A glass house by Tom Fruin, the Brooklyn-based artist known for colorful glass mosaic watertowers and other structures, is on display in the open-air courtyard of of Empire Stores along the Brooklyn waterfront for the month of May. Kolonihavehus, a plexiglass and steel sculpture of reclaimed materials that is inspired by the shape of a garden house, has been a well-known fixture in New York City – following appearances in Manhattan, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and most recently, North Brooklyn Farm at Domino Park – and around the world. Tom Fruin confirms for us that this glass house will be at Empire Stores until the end of June.
