“Borough of Manhattan”
National Post Card Week 2012
National Post Card Week is celebrated annually during the first full week of May. I correspond with almost two-hundred post card pen pals in The United States and abroad. Each year I choose one of my sculptures or art happenings to be reproduced as a post card for NPCW. This year’s image is the third in a black and white series:
2010 featured Art Carney as Ed Norton emerging from a sewer.
2011 a Ford Water Meter Pit Cover is based on my original dark room developed photo.
2012 is a portrait of myself in front of my sculpture relief. Ed Norton worked in the NYC Sewers and my “Borough of Manhattan,” is based on an actual New York City Grate. Text on the frontispiece:
Manhole Cover Aficionado, aka
“The Grate Lady,” Bobbi creates
paper works and sculptures of
water covers and manhole covers.
1994 A Banner Year for:
“Borough of Manhattan.”
It complimented The New York
Hall of Science’s summer theme:
“Deciphering the Secrets of New
York City’s Hidden Infrastructure.”
“Borough of Manhattan” was
selected for The National
Association of Women Artists’
Permanent Collection at the
Zimmerli Art Museum: Rutgers U.
Campus in New Brunswick, N J USA.
The Grateworks Collection for National Postcard Week is displayed under my bio/about.
