A new art installation comes to Brooklyn at the Lena Horne Bandshell in Prospect Park. Conceptual photographer Kevin Claiborne created a mural featuring phrases like “Where can Blackness reach” and “Where is Black enough,” superimposed upon the repeating face of an unidentified Black youth from Harlem in the early 1900s. The mural offers viewers critical self-reflection and an examination of the Black experience. Titled Lost Boys, it is presented by BRIC and Prospect Park Alliance, in partnership with NYC Parks’ Art in the Parks program. Guests are encouraged to dive deeper into the origins and embodiment of Blackness with this mural, on view through April 24th, 2023.
