  1. Growing up in Williamsburg ,Brooklyn NY and playing the streets we would use “manhole covers as home plate in stick ball . My generation called them “sewer covers “.
    Bobbi’s ” Grateworks ” makes me realize the beauty of the art inherit in the “sewers”.
    Whenever I visit my childhood neighborhood , I now look down at the “sewer covers” and a work of art filled with so much meaning .
    Thank you Bobbi

  2. The ubiquitous world around each of us is brought to the forefront with her art. She takes the mundane and gives it LIFE!!!!!!!

    Bobbi Mastrangelo’s art is a reflection of her….beautiful..
