Hello and Happy New Year! I am pleased to open the year with the news that Gil Scott-Heron is among eight well-known achievers showcased in a dramatic work of art“Beacons” that graces a Bronx subway station wall (167 Street stop). The work was quietly unveiled on the evening of Wednesday, Jan. 9th 2019.
This phenomenal work pays tribute to men and women who had/have a connection to the Bronx. (Gil attended Fieldston, a private school in the Bronx, and includes memories of his time there in “The Last Holiday,” his memoir.)
Congratulations to Rico Gatson for this concept.
