NEW EXHIBIT! Oil Slicks by John Cyr

Opening reception:
Friday, September 23rd

About the work:
This is a selection from a series that John made on the Gowanus Canal in 2009. During this time, many commercially zoned sites and structures were in the process of being rezoned for residence. These oil slicks represent this neighborhood’s ever-present connection to its rich and unregulated industrial history that spanned over a century. In 2010, the Gowanus Canal was added to the EPA’s Superfund National Priorities List and a thorough cleanup in now underway.
