DUMBO - The Brooklyn Bridge turned 130 years old on Friday, and to celebrate, an Italian artist has created an interactive art exhibit on and around the bridge.

Francesco Alessandra made the bridge the center of his artistic vision, designing 130 frames to mark its 130th birthday and encouraging the public to use the frames to photograph the bridge. Alessandra says he wanted to do something unique and different to commemorate the Brooklyn Bridge.

Alessandra is asking for people to post their photos on Instagram so he can find them. He says eventually, he wants to exhibit all the photos in a gallery or turn them into a book.
