While wandering the streets of Brooklyn, Rich Garr of Gotham Sidewalks spotted a historical plaque dedicated to “grocery workers, nurses, hospital staff, doctors, mail carriers, immigrant laborers and other true heroes of our pandemic lives”. This symbol of utmost appreciation was located across the street from Brooklyn Methodist Hospital in Park Slope.
Out and about yesterday around Brooklyn and found that unsurprisingly the street art scene is thriving. No museum or gallery needed. There’s a new kind of #streetarthistory plaque across from Methodist Hospital
The plaque was signed “Education Department 2020”, aka street artist Norm Magnussen.
Here’s the original artwork by Magnussen.
Other Brooklyn street artists have also paid tribute to the people who have kept the city going.
