I had the pleasure on Wednesday night of going to the unveiling of artist, José Parlá's latest painting, Diary of Brooklyn—a 70-foot long mural spanning the Dean Street entrance of the Barclays Center. The piece is massive and the largest of José's to date.
"Diary of Brooklyn is a painting dedicated to the history of the borough and its people. Although the words in this painting are illegible and abstract, I hope you find your own relationship and story through its emotional energy whether you are local or a visitor," says José of the piece. If you're a fan (like me) it's worth its own trip to the Barclays Center. Otherwise check it out if you're ever at the arena—it's pretty hard to miss.

This picture doesn't to the piece justice, but it gives you an idea of how big it is.
A guest: I like his mustache.
Love the coat! It's from somewhere in Beijing, she said.
