Following up on his Love Letters to Philadelphia and Syracuse, Steve Powers most recently transformed downtown Brooklyn with his witty and endearing public art. Powers was given the walls of Macy’s department store parking garage for his project, and instead of the colorful palettes of his previous Love Letters, for BK NY, he chose black and white, reminiscent of his early days with Exterior Surface Painting Outreach.
