DESCRIPTION

The ninth artist in the Brooklyn Museum’s Raw/Cooked series presenting under-the-radar Brooklyn artists is Sunset Park–based Caitlin Cherry. For her Raw/Cooked project, titled Hero Safe, Cherry has created three painting installations that draw upon Leonardo da Vinci's sketches for large-scale weapons. Each installation includes a large wood structure that acts as a support for one of her paintings. Two are positioned in the Contemporary Art Galleries' overlooks and appear to be aimed at the chandelier in the Beaux-Arts Court below. The third is situated within the brick arcade in the Rubin Lobby.
