These photos were taken in front of Ellie Balk's public art work, You Are Here, which symbolically connects the neighborhoods of Clinton Hill and Fort Greene in Brooklyn. The red dot in the middle represents the exact location of the mural within the surrounding geography.
"The purpose of this mural is to connect these two diverse neighborhoods into one place and to raise awareness of just how close we are to each other." -Ellie Balk
I thought the colorful woven design of my clutch perfectly embodied the mural itself, as well as Balk's idea of the meshing together of the community.
I'm wearing a Tracy Reese dress, Havaianas, and Cleobella clutch.
