This week, Brooklyn artist Katie Yamasaki shared her thoughts with us on what’s good about New York in the Spring? Here’s what she had to say:
“Everything opens. The trees grow buds that burst into leaves and flowers. Thawed, muddy earth gives way to grass and daffodils. Frozen commuters hunched against bitter winds open their chest and lift their chins to the damp warmth of a late-April morning. Closed faces, tired from long, dark winter nights open- to greet their friends, their children and strangers on the street with the lightness of possibility shining in their eyes.”
—Katie Yamasaki is an artist based in Brooklyn, NY. She works primarily as a muralist, children’s book author / illustrator and teaching artist.
