Bricks To Berlin

Tuesday, March 31, 2009, 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM

New Yorkers are the first to be invited to participate in “Bricks to Berlin,” an interactive exhibit of artist-designed brick forms to be signed by the New York creative community, famous personalities and the public with messages of hope, unity and freedom. From New York, the exhibit will travel worldwide, stopping in Paris, Shanghai, Istanbul and other global cities before concluding in Berlin.

More than 1,000 bricks with messages and artwork from around the world will be assembled at Brandenburg Gate in Berlin to recreate the historic Berlin Wall and then symbolically torn down in a one-of-a-kind reenactment at the center of planned ceremonies on November 9, 2009 to commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall.  

The “be Berlin” public events in New York City will also feature a “Berlin Nightlife” event at APT Club on Thursday evening, April 2.
