In 2019, lifelong Red Hook resident and photographer Alden Parkinson and Japanese sculptor Harumi Ori were selected by residents of the Red Hook Houses to participate in the Bridging the Divide: Artist Residency Program.
They each created artworks inspired by a series of workshops they held with residents. Alden’s series “Red Hook Look” captures the creativity, talent, and leadership in Red Hook, hoping to give outsiders a glimpse of what Red Hook really looks like.
Harumi’s series “I am Here @ Red Hook Houses,” features time-stamped moments in the neighborhood, carefully crafted by her signature orange mesh material and executed in large-scale digital print.
This public art exhibition was created for the residents of the Red Hook Houses. Please be mindful and consider your impact in this community before choosing to view it in person.
