Art, Coffee, and other events

Update: Due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy, the November 9th Breakfast talk has been postponed. A new date has not yet been assigned.

It’s been a while since we’ve updated this page, so it’s time to let you know what we’ve been up to.

First off a hearty thanks to Brendan O’Malley who worked as Project Coordinator and maintained this site through last semester. Brendan helped get the BWRC off the ground in its first year and has set the bar for a lot of the excellent programming we have planned.

In September BWRC has helped sponsor the exhibit “Brooklyn Underwater” at Kingsborough Community College. The exhibit is an artistic documentation of Brooklyn sites that will be effected by sea level rise. Many of these places are heavily developed. See for example this stunning photo by Robin Michals:

Looking to the future, keep an eye out for more information on our upcoming Breakfast Talk, or should I say Coffee Talk. On November 9th we will be continuing our popular Breakfast Talk series with a discussion on Coffee and the Brooklyn Waterfront: Its History, Decline, Return. If you want more details or would like to reserve your space early keep an eye on our RSVP page.
