Artists Try to Put a Good Face on Brooklyn's Arenafication

The Artbridge scaffolding art project already saved us from the terrifying scaffolding at London Terrace, and now it plans to take on a bigger construction site nightmare: Atlantic Yards. Back in June, the organization solicited entries from Brooklyn-based artists, specifically seeking "visual works that riff on, reveal, or reference the artistic process." Artbridge has chosen 20 artists whose work will cover close to 2,500 square feet of Atlantic Yards construction fencing. The installation, which goes up October 17, is fittingly called "Works in Progress." But when it comes to Atlantic Yards, is any amount of beautification enough?
