BROOKLYN - An artist in the borough is not only painting his works with paint used on the Brooklyn Bridge, but also selling cans of it.
The paint is the focus of an art show at the Urban Folk Art Gallery, which is celebrating the iconic landmark's 130th anniversary. The artwork was created with limited edition surplus paint used on the bridge.
Boerum Hill artist Adam Suerte bought the paint from the Department of Transportation and is now selling it as part of the Brooklyn Bridge Anniversary Group Art Show.
The paint comes in personally designed cans that sell for $25 each at the gallery. All proceeds go toward the gallery.
