Alexis Rockman: Manifest Destiny
In conjunction with the opening of the Brooklyn Museum's new entrance pavilion, the American artist Alexis Rockman painted an 8 ft. x 24 ft. mural envisioning the distant future of the borough of Brooklyn. Rockman's project suggests what the geological, botanical, and zoological future might bring, predicting the ecosystem of the area thousands or even millions of years from now. This book looks at the preliminary drawings and research by the artist for Manifest Destiny and contains a full-color foldout image of the mural.
