Living Prayer & Joy on Broadway

Living Prayer from Watermark Arts on Vimeo.

From my first viewing of Kent, CT sculptor Joy Brown’s beyond life size bronze “gentle giants,” I knew I wanted to move with them.

On a freezing but sunny December day in 2017, the opportunity presented itself at Joy Brown on Broadway, a mile long exhibit of nine sculptures in city parks sponsored by the NYC Department of Parks with support from Purple Roof Atelier of Shanghai and Morrison Gallery, Kent, CT.

Intrepid Continuum movers Melanie Gambino and Elisabeth Osgood-Campbell joined me, along with with videographer Evan Fairbanks, photographer Phyllis McCabe and Joy Brown, herself. We filmed with the contemplative Kneeler at 116th and Broadway, which resulted in the Living Prayer video (2 minutes), music by Morena Boschetto, video editing by Reid Hannan.

“Joy on Broadway” was filmed with the playful, sun-warmed Recliners at 116th St & Broadway, NYC, December 2017 with Elaine Colandrea, Melanie Gambino and Elisabeth Osgood-Campbell. Filmed by Evan Fairbank, edited by Hannah Tobias with photography by Phyllis McCabe. Watermark Arts, 2019, (3 min.)
