Church Avenue will have five new colorful and vibrant additions to the neighborhood in Spring 2012. The Church Avenue Business Improvement District (Church Avenue BID) is pleased to announce the designs selected for Uncover Church Avenue.
Uncover Church Avenue received over 50 submissions from artists throughout Brooklyn, including students from Erasmus Hall High School. After months of community voting, brochures distributed, and an exhibition at the Flatbush Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library (ending on February 24th), the votes are finally in.
The participating Uncover Church Avenue artists include:
Bruce Zeines for Bonnie Youth Club (1221 Church Avenue)
Rudjessy Secours for Richie Rich (1219 Church Avenue)
Sherry Ginsberg Davis for Iglesia Pentecostal (1115 Church Avenue)
Nu for Children’s Corner (1101 Church Avenue)
Catherine Rutgers for Drive Time Radio (1111 Church Avenue)
The artists are a mix of local residents (Bruce Zeines, Sherry Ginsberg Davis, and Catherine Rutgers), a newcomer to Church Avenue (Nu), and an Erasmus Hall High School student (Rudjessy Secours). “This part of Church Avenue is a very interesting zone, with stores on one side and homes on the other”, states 20-year resident Catherine Rutgers, “My goal was to enhance a wonderful and complex environment, and bring eye-catching, refreshing brightness to the storefronts”.
The Church Avenue BID applauds all of the artists who partipcated in Uncover Church Avenue and their commitment towards creating a positive and dynamic streetscape on Church Avenue.
Reminder!: There is one more week to check out all of the talented artists at the UCA exhibit at the Flatbush Branch of the Brooklyn Public Library (22 Linden Blvd., off Flatbush Ave.).
