Whitman's Steps, Risers and Rests

A sketch of a proposal for a social sculpture for a corner of Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn, in part inspired by Walt Whitman, who, while writing editorials for the Brooklyn Eagle, helped raise awareness of the need for a park to ease the "bad air" and overcrowding of the shanty town that then existed in that area. (now Myrtle Ave)


Whitman's Steps, Risers and Rests, Tom McGlynn, 2010

The artist Laura Napier collaborated with me on a this proposal, incorporating aspects of her prior participatory projects for this piece
