Guest artist, Hiromi Niizeki
On plaza at Court St and Montague St, Brooklyn [map]

Hiromi asks people to stop for a short time and think about what is important to them and why. Participants may respond to the question by drawing, writing and/or creating small pieces of art work to leave in the pockets. 




Niizeki Hiromi: Niizeki has exhibited her work both domestically and internationally at many prominent art institutions which include The National Museum of Art in Johannesburg, South Africa; Palo Alto Junior Museum, Palo Alto, CA; Memorial Art Gallery, The University of Rochester, Rochester, NY; Highways Performance and Arts, Los Angeles, CA; Cave, Brooklyn, NY; and La Foret Museum, Tokyo, Japan. Her mixed media installations, sculptural objects, and assemblages embody her interest in exploring the use of various types of existing and handmade papers. Her work is widely known and exists among a number of high profile collections. She has received critical acclaim by art critics such as Holland Cotter of The New York Times, Stuart Ferguson of the Wall Street Journal, and Jane Ingram Allen for Sculpture Magazine. She has participated in a number of Arts Residencies which include Clock Tower Gallery/PS1 Contemporary Art Center, N.Y. and Governors Island Studio Program at the Children's Museum of the Arts, New York. Niizeki resides and works in Astoria, Queens, since 1988.  www.niizekihiromi.com
