Stained-Plexiglas Watertower Illuminates the Brooklyn Skyline in Dazzling Color

There are approximately 1000 pieces of salvaged NYC plexiglas mounted on the steel structure of artist Tom Fruin's newest sculpture, a 25' by 10' patchwork water tower—set atop a collection of artist's studios at 120 Jay Street in DUMBO, Brooklyn—called, simply, Watertower.

Beginning June 7th, the tower will be lit from within by digitally-controlled light sequences playing from dusk till morning for a full year. A welcome addition to Brooklyn's skyline, Watertower will be visible from Lower Manhattan, FDR Drive, and the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges at night. [AnimalNY - Images via Robert Banat]
