DUMBO Fishes To Sleep With The Fishes OR Farewell Fish Farm (Brooklyn Snappers)

BHB reader “Lew” sent us this photo of Ben Snead’s Fish Farm installation being removed from their perch at the corner of Washington and Prospect in DUMBO.

The piece was part of the DUMBO Arts Festival and described as:

Large fish head sculptures including a lane snapper, a yellow tail snapper and a rock hind, which are all found in local fish markets in Brooklyn. The fish live in tropical waters such as the Caribbean and are transported here for human consumption. By enlarging them and placing them on grass, they are taken further out of context.
