DUMBO — Admirers of DUMBO's iconic water tower can now get up close and personal with a replica of the sculpture made from nearly 1,000 pieces of salvaged, colored plexiglass.
"A client in Wisconsin wanted to buy the original," Fruin explained. "I didn't want to sell her that one so I decided to make her a new one."
Named Watertower II, Fruin's newest sculpture will soon make the trip to Wisconsin where it will be put on display in a private sculpture park. But before it leaves Brooklyn, Fruin wanted to share it with the public. It will be on display in Brooklyn Bridge Park May 10-12.
