Jose Parla Diary of Brooklyn

The new Barclays Center Stadium in Downtown Brooklyn opened with some controversy and pizazz. Locals hate the traffic it’ll bring, soda drinkers were pissed because it was the first location to adopt Bloomberg’s large soda ban, then everyone was cool with it as Jay-Z rode the subway to his inaugural concerts there. Anyway, the stadium is also home to its very own site-specific mural by Jose Parlá. Sprawling across the entire Dean Street entrance, the piece incorporates a loose calligraphy that pays homage to Brooklyn’s history, and can be seen in its full splendor from the outside. It will soon be joined by pieces by Mickalene Thomas and others to be announced.
