Jean Shin : Something Borrowed, Something Blue
Feb 15 - Dec 31 2026 - 990 days left
Commissioned by Brooklyn Public Library, Jean Shin's Something Borrowed, Something Blue is a permanent artwork at Brooklyn Heights Library that was commissioned on Brooklyn Public Library’s 125th Anniversary. Marking the inauguration of the newly renovated branch, the public work offers the people of Brooklyn a potent materialization and metaphor of knowledge in our contemporary life and the library as a living system. Jean Shin’s hanging illuminated sculpture is situated on the prow of the building in the main reading room and is visible from all sides, from the ground and mezzanine levels.
