Marcelo Ertorteguy, Heart Seat, Fort Greene Park, Sara Valente

By Rebeca Ramirez, Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership

Stroll by the corner of Fort Greene Park entrance at Myrtle Avenue and Washington Park to see the Heart Seat, a public seating element that made of a repurposed water tank. The eye-catching piece was created by Brooklyn based-design studio Stereotank, founded by architects Marcelo Ertorteguy and Sara Valente, both Brooklyn-based artists.

Heart Seat was originally commissioned for the juried Times Square Valentine Heart Design Competition, where it greeted thousands of visitors first as a heart-shaped participative installation. It then traveled to DUMBO to welcome visitors to the Pearl Street Triangle. Heart Seat is on view Now – October 2015.
