Rose Garden

The Connective Project

All Day, Friday, July 7, 2017

In celebration of the 150th Anniversary of Brooklyn’s Backyard, Prospect Park Alliance, AREA4 and Suchi Reddy of Reddymade Architecture & Design are bringing together artists, Brooklyn notables and the public to create a site-specific art installation, on view July 7 through 17, which celebrates the special meaning the Park has in the lives of millions of community members from across the borough and beyond.

Please note that the Rose Garden closes at dusk.

Add your pinwheel to the display during our free, pinwheel-making workshops Thursdays + Fridays from 4-8 pm, and Saturdays + Sundays from 2-6 pm. View our online gallery and learn more about the project!

The Connective Project is an immersive art installation of thousands of pinwheels that will create an evolving, undulating wave of color and beauty that will blanket the two-and-half acre former Rose Garden, a hidden landscape in the Park's northeast corner that is the focus of future restoration by Prospect Park Alliance. Through June 30, the Alliance will hold an open call for submissions from the public to share artwork, photos, verse or prose that express their love of Prospect Park. All submissions will be featured on an online gallery, while select pieces will be printed and transformed into one of 7,000 pinwheels that will be showcased in the Rose Garden, constructed of weather-resistant, compostable paper made from stone dust.

The Connective Project is funded in part by Bloomberg Philanthropies, with additional support from NewYork-Presbyterian Brooklyn Methodist Hospital, NYC Parks and GSB Digital.

Learn more about the project, free pinwheel making workshops and view our gallery of artwork!

Bandshell

Robert Randolph & the Family Band + Eric Kranso

Thursday, July 13 , 6:30 pm – 11 pm, 2017

Robert Randolph & the Family Band and Eric Kranso will perform at the Bandshell as part of BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival, presented in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.

Robert Randolph spent his childhood in the House of God Church in Orange, New Jersey, a young pedal steel player steeped in gospel music. As an adult he has become one of the greatest living guitarists, with "howling melodies and perpetually cresting, lightning-fast explorations" (Rolling Stone) that have earned him admiration from the likes of Eric Clapton and Derek Trucks. His funk-and-soul quintet ROBERT RANDOLPH & THE FAMILY BAND offers wildly energetic renditions of the music, with an assortment of onstage traditions they've gathered over the years: bandmates swap instruments, microphones get passed around the crowd, and Randolph teaches everyone new dance moves.

Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
